I've sent an email with attachment to a friend - but his Applemac will not open the attachment. Emails are OK, but not attachments! Am I doing something wrong or what? The attached document was created via Open Office .odt. using OE

Your friend needs Open Office on their computer to open the file. This is not a Mac thing the same would apply in Windows.

You could tell them to try and open the file in 'Preview'

If they have Word on the Mac you could Save As the file in OO as a doc and resend.

Thanks, bremner! That's very helpful. I'll try the doc route and see what happens.
