my outlook express pdf attachments open in Word scrambled?

My pdf attachments will now only open in a Word document and are not
readable. I upgraded to Adobe Reader 8 AFTER this started happening, as I
assumed my computer required the update and that is why it stopped working.
Any suggestions?

Thanks.

If I receive attachments that are in PDF format, when I try to open them by
double clicking in Outlook, they try to open in Word and are garbled. If I
try to convert a Word file to a PDF, it creates the PDF but when you try to
open the file in Explorer, it always trys to open them in Word. What gives?

Thanks!

outlook express anymore, please help me.

Is anyone else running Outlook 2002 with Office 2010 (minus Outlook)?  We can't run Outlook 2010 because we are on Exchange 2000.  Clients running Outlook 2002 and Word 2010 have an issue opening RTF emails.  They open in Word instead of Outlook.  HTML emails open fine.

Anyone else run into this?

My Outlook (2007) will not open in normal mode. It doesn't give any error
codes or anything, just closes. I tried opening it in safe mode and it still
did the same thing. I ran Detect and Fix and still the same thing happens.
All other Microsoft Office programs open. HELP PLEASE

when PDF document attachments come into my email inbox, they are opened in
Word, and consequently cannot be read unless saved to desktop and then opened
with adobe - a convoluted process. It hasn't always been this way. What have
i changed?

Since recent updates on Dec 16, outlook express has stopped opening any .pdf
attachments.

One of my users has a weird issue. Using Outlook 2007, when she tries to
open a .tif attachment it tries to open in Word, which won't open the file.
Save it to her computer and Picture and Fax viewer opens the tif. I don't
see anywhere in Outlook where you would specify that.

Suggestions?

I accessed an incoming Outlook Express E-mail attachment, modified some
areas, saved it as "first draft 3," and E-mailed it back to the sender.

The attachment did not reach the recipient. But now I cannot find the
attachment that I modified, and saved as "first draft 3."
I have searched the Outlook Express Folders, recent documents in Word 2003,
and my hard drive. No results found.

Please advise me on "How to find this missing document?"

Ok.... I don't know what has happened, but I need my outlook express folders.
I logged on today in my Outlook Express program and everything was fine. I
just went in tonight to check my mail and all of a sudden WINDOWS LIVE MAIL
opens up and my folders are no where to be found! My e-mail accounts are
grouped together, but the actual Outlook Express folders with important
information in them is now gone!

What happened??? I didn't make Windows Live Mail my default and didn't
change anything to make this happen. I am the only one on my computer and
haven't a clue as to why this happened! Please help. I have pictures in
those folders that I need as well as e-mails from my husband who is
overseas....

Please help!

Hi ,
I just switched on my computer and signed into my Windows live messenger.
I clicked on the "mail icon" to take me to my msn.email box. But to my
surprise instead of being taken to my online email box my Outlook express
keeps opening up and I can't get to my online email account.
I didn't set up /linked up my .....msn.com email account with the microsoft
outlook on my computer (to my knowledge), since I use the outlook with a
different email.
Any ideas on how to fix this problem?
Your help is much appreciated.
Thank you,
Tomas
