The problem mainly is when I am using BT Connect email and amd trying to open attachments and quite often I am unable to open the attachment. Sometimes if it is a Word doc it tries to save it as an HTML attachment even when I right click and ask to 'save target'
I am running the latest version of IE and have all the Windows updates (Vista). However if I use Google Chrome it doesn't seem to happen and I can open attachments. Any thoughts, it's not too serious as I can always use Chrome but it is a bit of a puzzle.
Not sure when it started, originally thought it was when my old Netgear packed in and Madasafish supplied a new router (Thomson). They have since supplied me with a new router (Technicolor). It doesn't happen all the time and not always with BT Connect, sometimes with Hotmail.

Re: Attachment

[re: rooster63] [link to this post]
What email client on PC are you using? Or are you talking Webmail?

If latter you appear to be saving webpage not attachment.
