    Can't open an email as an attahcment in an email (Outlook 2007 )

    Suddenly about a week ago I now cannot open an email that is an attachment in an email. I can open other types of files that are attachements but not an email as an attachment. The email can be any email that was sent as an attechment from Outlook 2000 - 2007. No erorr message is generated, it just doens't open and the content of the emails that are attached doesn't manner, can be just text, contain a picture, etc.

    If you click Forward, can you open the attachment while composing?

    If you save a message to disk in the .msg format and double-click it, does Windows know to launch it in Outlook?

    Have you emptied your Outlook temporary folder? Error opening attachments / Cleaning out the Temporary Outlook Files folder | HowTo-Outlook has instructions on finding the folder.
