Applications :: Can't Open Excel Attachments From My Account?
I get an error message that says the file cannot be accessed because it is a "read-only" or in a read only location. I tried both opening it from the email and saving it to my desktop and opening it. Both ways I get the same message. These are files that I believe were created on Excel for Windows.

Applications :: Can't Open Office Attachments In Entourage 2008?
I suddenly can't open office documents (ppt, word or excel docs) in entourage when people send them to me as attachments. i think there was a software update recently, and maybe it was this that caused it. But, it is driving me crazy. I can open the attachments inside mac mail fine. In Entourage, says they may not be a ppt, or word, etc. doc, or that they may be "in-use."

Applications :: Forcing Browsers To Open Email Attachments In Browser, Not Download Them?
Not sure if this is a Hotmail thing or a browser thing, but if someone attaches a jpeg to an email I recieve in Hotmail, when I click it in Firefox I get a dialogue box asking: What should Firefox do with this file? Open With [choose...] or Save file?In Safari, it just automatically downloads the picture to the default download location and then auto opens it with Preview.This is so annoying! How do I set my browsers to just open jpegs within the browser?

Mac Safari :: Why Are Word Attachments Being Converted To Text/octet-stream Attachments
When I use my works webmail through safari I send word attachments.

They seem to get changed to text/octet-stream instead of just word application.

Does any body know how to correct this?

Applications :: Unable To Open Safari Window / Safari Not Working Fine
I put off doing the software update on Safari... I just HAD a feeling something would go wrong and I didn't have time to mess with it if it did.

So today I ran and update. And it messed up.

Now Safari will "open"... it looks like it is open and I have access to all the menus. But a Safari window will not open.

I am surprised that I haven't seen others with this problem. I have tried deleting the cache and deleting the preferences file. Neither seem to have made ANY difference.

I'm at a loss as to what to do. And I am feeling like I'm missing a body part. I need my Safari back!

OS X Leopard :: How To Open Outlook Attachments In Mail 3.5
So I receive attachments from clients who are obviously using win outlook and the files are coming in as winmail.dat. I'm using Mail 3.5 and imap through google's app email service. I tried "Letter Opener" but unfortunately it does not support what it calls "gmail winmail.dat" files. I've read the apple support about asking the person to change to plain text etc and that doesn't work for me.

OS X Leopard :: Unable To Open Word Attachments
Working on reviewing book chapters for a large NPO and have a big problem trying to open multiple Word files attached to incoming emails. Am using OS 10.5.8 and AOL email account, Word for Mac 2008 with auto-updates. If more than one Word file is attached, I get a message, "filename.doc uses a file type that is blocked from opening in this version." None of the suggested work-arounds to open the file (such as from within Word) will work. This problem does not occur with a newly created gmail account. I know a solution is to use the gmail account, but I really don't want to change email addresses.My (husband has the same problem on his new MacBook Pro that I talked him into buying, and this problem does not occur with the old PC and Outlook. Hard to argue with the hubby when he says it was easier with the PC.

OS X :: AOL Mail Attachments Need Downloading To Open
Why do attachments rec'd on my mac (10.4.11) through aol have to be downloaded before being opened? Then you have to open a zip file or open a variety of folders before you get to the item sent. Other computers allow you to just click on the attachment and the file opens immediately.

MacBook :: Can't Get Any Attachments To Open In Any Browser
When I log into my school's online classroom I can't get any attachments to open.I have tried Safari, Firefox and Opera.I have checked to make sure Java Script is enabled in all.I have checked to make sure my system is up to date. And I have checked all plug-ins and they are up to date.When I click on an attachment, like a file that my professor has uploaded, such as a study guide...nothing will open.It doesn't have an error message or anything. This started two days ago.I haven't done anything out of the ordinary to cause this issue.If I scroll over the link that I want to open, it says Javascript://.It isn't a problem with the website, because other people are able to open these links.

I don't know anything about her system except "we have people working on both pcs and macs, but you should be able to send me attachments . . ." Do I need to save them as something else, and if so how? (I'm new to attaching my own documents.)

OS X Tiger :: Recipients Using Lotus Notes Can Open JPG Attachments?
Normally, using Mail to send a JPG as an attachment works fine, but for some time now one client (a major corporation), using Lotus Notes on PCs, receives my JPGs 'embedded' rather than as attachments and cannot open them. Apparently, it's only JPGs that are affected in this way. I've tried formatting my emails as plain text, which initially seemed to do the trick - but even this doesn't work now, at least not reliably.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Can't Open Pdf Attachments From Mail
When I'm in Mail and try to open or save to my computer and then open a pdf in Preview, I get an error message -"The file “Proposal to Seattle City Light - Wolverine Study 6Mar2012.pdf” could not be opened.  It may be damaged or use a file format that Preview doesn’t recognize." This happens with all pdfs in Mail.  However, if I go to email account on the Internet and download the pdf it opens no problem. This is a new problem, though I can't say if it started happening as soon as I upgraded to Lion or if it happened sometime after (definitely not before).

Applications :: Safari Cannot Open Gmail Login Page
Anyone having problems accessing gmail in Safari today? When I try to access the sign-in page, it tells me that "Safari can't open the page [URL] because your computer isn't connected to the Internet." I am clearly connected to the internet. Also, my cannot connect to my gmail account and neither can my GPeek widget.

However, I have no problem accessing gmail via Firefox. I have noticed this problem a few times over the past 2-3 weeks, but though it was a google issue. Today was the first time I thought of trying to access gmail via Firefox, and it does, which points to Safari. Of course, now that I've finished typing this up, I can access gmail via Safari with no problems.

Applications :: Safari 4 Background Tab Open Bug?
I'm seeing this weird Safari bug where when I "Open in new background tab" on a link, the new tab opens, but its graphic shows that it is selected. See screenshot attached. Anyone else experiencing this? The only thing I can think of that I did to my system is I installed SIMBL and GreaseKit, but I have since uninstalled them both, but the problem still persists. I'm on 10.6.2, Safari 4.0.4.
