    Default OE file recognition

    There is one computer in our household that will not open a .PDF attachment when clicked on in Outlook Express but is quite happy opening the same file when saved to the hard disk. Anyone know why this might be?

    Any errors?

    Right Click the pdf on the HDD, open with, tick "always open with this app" and select Adobe Reader.

    Done that. The file opens Ok from the hard disk when clicked on but not as an attachment

    Is this a file that gets sent regularly and then opened within OE, did it previously work?

    Yes, it used to work but failed after extensive reorganising of the computer.
