Problem Opening Attachments
« on: April 04, 2008, 10:07:51 PM »
I get attachments in MS Outlook from time to time that I can't open. They seem to have .msg extension. Wandering what the problem is. >:(

Are you sure that those attachments are supposed to be interesting files?
A .msg extension points to an email attachment (the attachment itself is another mail) (see here for more ints at what it could be).

I found out what the problem was. The problem was with Google Toolbar. I uninstalled Google Tool Bar and the problem went away.

Thanks for your input.

Also, check out Outlook Attachment Enabler to allow access to block attachments in Outlook.
