I sent an email with an attachment to a friend who uses Hotmail. She reports that starting yesterday she's been unable to open attachments.
it was all OK until then, but now she gets a message "IE is unable to find your document". Has anyone else had this problem? can anyone suggest a solution, please?

have you tried mailing to another account to establish which end the problem is?

AS far as I know others have not had a problem. It was originally sent to me by friend A who had sent it to several others. (it's minutes of a meeting that we all attended) I was able to open it OK, so were the others as far as I know, except for friend B who couldn't open it when recieved direct from A or from me.

Yes, I think so; she said this problem began yesterday and that until then she had opened attachments without problems.

Looks as though it was a temporary hotmail problem. It's OK again today.

sounds about right it has been very unstable since expanding mailbox facilities.
