And what email client?

Since you may be able to choose default apps independently from the Windows default apps.

jpeg - you need a program that opens jpeg images. You probably do.

pps - PowerPoint Slideshow. You need MS Office PowerPoint, or the PowerPoint Viewer (which you can download free from MS).

Don't know what it's called in Vista

by seanferd In reply to program for JPEg

but Windows always has a Picture Viewer. Internet Explorer will open jpeg and other picture types. This will open all sorts of image files, including jpeg.

I highly suggest copying or detaching the attachments to the desktop or another folder, then try to open them. The filetypes should already be associated.

Are you saying that you cannot start the Powerpoint and Media Player programs? Can you open them from the Start menu? Do they work other than the problem with email attachments?

We would still like to know what you are using for an email client.

How to check or set file associations in Vista:

See if the PPS and JPEG types are there, and have programs associated to open them. PPS should be set to open with Powerpoint. Jpeg should be set to open with an image viewer - it seems in Vista this would be WindowsPhotoGallery.exe

C:\Program Files\Windows Photo Gallery\WindowsPhotoGallery.exe"
