I am having this same problem but with jpg files. I was always able to
simply click on pictures in my e-mail in or sent boxes, and they would
automatically open. As of today all of sudden I get "Application not found"
message every time I try to open a pic in e-mail. I have tried to go to
Folders options but can't find it in my Control Panel or in Windows Explorer
tools to even check there for what the default program is to open these files
in Outlook. The only programs that appear (in Explorer under Internet
Options) in order to specify which program to use for each internet option
are: HTML editor, E-mail, Newsgroups, Internet Call, Calendar and Contact
List. HELP!!! I am using Windows Explorer Version 7.0.5730.11 and
Microsoft Outlook 2002 (10.6822.6830) SP3 with Windows XP
