Outlook 2007 - Tiffs open in Word...


S

Steve Gould

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?

It's not an Outlook setting, it's a Windows setting. Outlook should obey
the Windows file type associations. Control Panel>Folder Options>File Types
tab

The first thing you might try is to empty the Outlook Secure Temp Folder.
See
http://www.howto-outlook.com/faq/securetemp.htm . However, best practice it
to save attachments first, then open them.

It wasn't until I got to her desk that I realized there was a generic icon
associated with the tiff. That was all it took to realize that no app was
associated. Sometimes end users just give the wrong info... Well, easy fix.
Thnks for your help.
