  • We need more information in order to help you.

    What file type you the attachment?  Some file are not allowed to be attached and some to be downloaded such as: exe , cmd , bat, vbs , sometimes ZIP

    What type of email configuration you have? Maybe your network administrator has restricted such files.

  • Hi I am having the same problem.  I only have a home computer, Vista Home Premium but in all of the 8 years of using my emails and downloading attachments from family and business I have never had a problem.  Since outlook took over my Hotmail account I cannot open, save, print or download anything.  What is the problem.  Please help.
