How to Access Attachments In E-mail Clients?
How to access attachments in e-mail clients and what are the errors that may come up in doing so?
Many e-mails have attachments with them which need to viewed. To view these attachments, they have to be downloaded first. Errors might come up if you want to directly open the attachments without saving it on the hard disk. However, even after r saving it on the hard disk, many attachments cannot be opened or accessed. This is a very common problem with attachments.
Some of the errors that come up to access attachments in e-mail clients are as follows:
- The program required to open the attachment is absent in the system
- The operating system does not support the extension with which the file has to be opened
- The size of the attachment is too large
- Security issues
The program required to open the attachment is absent in the system
The program that is required to open an attachment may not be present in the system. This prevents the attachment from being opened. For music files, there needs to be Windows® Media Player® or a Real Player installed on the machine. Similarly for documents, Word®, Excel® and Acrobat Reader® should be there.
The operating system does not support the extension with which the file has to be opened
The operating system on the computer may not support the extension in which the attachments are sent. For e.g. in Windows®, word documents open in .doc format, excel sheets in .xls format, pictures in .jpg or .gif format, music in .mp3 or .mpeg format and so on. So while attaching the files, they have to be saved in the compatible format and then sent.
The size of the attachment may be too large to open. Most of the e-mail clients have a specific size limit within which the mail has to be sent. If the file exceeds the size limit, the attachment might not open.
In many e-mail clients, like Outlook, there are security issues, which crop up while opening an attachment. The security options in Outlook have to be rechecked to solve this problem.
