Attachments in my e-mail are in mime.format. Can anyone advise how to change this so that it can be read. Thanks.
Also how do you remove outlook express and re install it.

Hi joesp and Welcome to PressF1 :)

You haven't mentioned what operating system you are using or current version of Internet Explorer/Outlook Express so I have only given a link below for Windows XP.

What email program is the person using that can't read your attachments.
MIME is normally used these days and most mail programes don't have a problem with this.

Hi Jen C. Thanks for info. Iam using win98 and intenet explorer 6. with outlook express. When I enter outlook ex. the computer locks up. I thought if i reinstalled it this might fix it.

Hi Jim B. Thanks for reply. E-Mail being used is outlook and this only happens on some attachments.

Outlook has restrictions on the type of attachments that can be opened.
If they forward the email to themselves and open it in Outlook Express they should be able to open it.

Otherwise it requires registry changes to enable Outlook to open most attachment file types.
