E-mail attachment

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
Recently I can no longer open an e-mail attachment directly from an e-mail in Outlook 2007. I can't open Excel, Word or PDF's attachments. It has been working fine but now it says unknown file type even though it has the correct file extension. It gives me the option to find, save or cancel. If I save it to my hard drive It then opens with the correct program.
