MacBook Pro :: Mail Won't Open Jpeg Attachments?

On my MBP, sometimes I'll get emails with a few jpeg photos attached. It won't open all of them. Sometimes it will let me open and save 3 or 4 of them, but not the rest. Anyone know what's up? Any of the things I've tried (right clicking, clicking Save as, or attemtping to do a drag & drop into iphoto) doesn't work.

OS X Tiger :: Preview Won't Open Selected Jpeg / Couldn't Open The File
A colleage on a Mac sends me jpegs, but once in a while I cannot open them in Preview. I get this message:

Couldn't open the file. It may be corrupt or a file format that Preview doesn't recognize.

The originator, my colleague, attached the jpeg to an email to another colleague, who forwarded it to me. I saved it to disk in a couple of different ways and locations, but was unable to open it with Preview, Photoshop Elements, Adobe Reader, or iPhoto via import.

OS X Leopard :: Sending JPEG And General Attachments In Mail?
I'm having problems sending attachments using Mail. I have both "always send Windows friendly attachments" and "always insert attachments at end of message" ticked and I can send PDF files just fine. But as soon as I try to send a JPEG attachment, the file just becomes unreadable.

Is this just with JPEG format or is this for any picture file type?

OS X Leopard :: Sending JPEG Files As Attachments In Mail?
It seems that no matter what method I try for attaching an actual JPEG file to an email in Mail, I end up sending the image, not the actual file. Is there a trick to doing this I have not found yet, or does Mail under Leopard only send images?

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).

OS X Leopard :: Mail Won't Add Attachments?
I've tried sending attachments with Mac Mail, but once I've selected the file, it doesn't show anywhere in the message body, and isn't sending with the message.

I have been able to do this in the past, then it became an intermittent problem that resolved itself when I restarted. Now it's a permanent issue.

OS X :: Apple Mail Won't Load Attachments?
Something wierd happened a few days ago. All of a sudden, whenever I try to add an attachment to a message, either by dragging a file or by using the attach button, Mail pinwheels and I have to force Quit it.

How do I reinstall it? I have all the disks and everything...but can I reinstall just one program? Will it still keep all my settings and all that?

Intel Mac :: Mail Won't Open - Bounces But Won't Open?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Mail 5.2 Won't Show Word Attachments Says Missing Plugin
Since I upgraded to Lion from Snow Leopard, Mail has had glitches. I fixed one; the other remains: I can't see Word attachments in emails. The only hint is the message "Missing Plug-in". If I show the entire header, Mail provides buttons to Quickview the document or save it.The previous problem was that Mail wouldn't start up (kept quitting while doing the initial database migration) because I'd left in MailActOn as a plugin. So I removed plugins and the contents of ~/Library/Mail/Bundles. Now Mail works except for this.

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.

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 :: 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.

OS X Leopard :: Using Mail Attachments Iconizer - Unacceptable As Google Mail Disallowed Zip Files As Attachments
I recently changed my business E-mail client to Mac Mail 3.8 from Eudora. I was very surprised that Mac Mail could not attach a graphic file to an E-mail without actually embedding the file into the E-mail. Mac to Mac my clients could access the file as an attachment, but Mac to PC they could not. I was very surprised to find that the only solution Apple support showed was to compress the graphic file as a zip archive file. This solution is unacceptable as Google Mail disallowed zip files as attachments, and more than a handful of my clients use G-Mail. I found a third party plug-in solution offered by Loki software called Mail Attachments Iconizer [URL] which actually works to change the way Mac Mail handles graphic file attachments, so that PC users can access the attached file.

Software :: ITunes And Mail Won't Open
I am running OS X 10.4.11 on an iMac PowerPC G4. After restarting following a power outage I found that I cannot open iTunes 8.0.2 or Mail 2.1. When I try to open from the dock or applications folder the icons bounce a few times and then stop. I have run Disk Utilities and repaired permissions and verified the disk. I have also uninstalled and then reinstalled iTunes without success.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Mail Won't Open At All
I bought the 13-inch i5 Macbook Pro about 3 or 4 weeks ago, and it is Lion. Mail would crash, even when just opened. I have never sucessfully opened Mail on my computer.The mail didn't crash in the middle of reading emails, when I click the icon from the Applications folder, the dock would budge a bit but the Mail Icon would not appear. If I try to re-open Mail, the icon will bounce for a few seconds then do the 'Quiting' animation and sink back into the dock.

I tried these solutions, but none of them worked.

Deleting the files in the V2 folder in ~/Library/Mail

'Get Info' the Mail App and clicking the little lock thing on the bottom

Deleting all the things in Mail Folder

Use SpeedMail

OS X Leopard :: Mail Won't Open Or Load Messages
I am having the following problem with Mail.. When I open Mail from either the Dock or Finder nothing opens. Mail appears in the menu bar and the only way of viewing its normal screen is to go: Window > Message Viewer When it comes up no emails show or load and I simply get 'Loading' with the loading wheel when I select a specific email. I think this came around the same time that I updated to 10.5.7, but I am not sure if the two are related. If so, I updated via 'Software Update'.

OS X Leopard :: HOW To Send Mail - Recipient Sees The Attachments As Icons And Then Double Clicks On Them To Open/view
I want to send messages with attachments.

I know that when you attach a document that MAIL imports the attachment into the body of the mail

I also know that "control click" allows me to "view as an icon"

However the recipient still sees the "exploded" attachment in the body of the mail

HOW do you send mail, so that the recipient sees the attachment/s as icons and then "double clicks" on them to open/view???

Software :: Hidden Attachments - Mail Application On The Mac To Recognize That There Are Attachments In The Email
I'm using MacOSX and Mac Mail. The cub scouts send a weekly newsletter via Scouttrack. When I view this on the Mac, I cannot see any attachments; it's like they are not there at all. When I view it from Outlook on a PC, it doesn't show the little paper clip, but when I open the email, then I can see that the attachments are there.

Is there any way to get the mail application on the Mac to recognize that there are attachments in the email??
