A patron had a question about opening e-mail attachments on the PCs.

Almost any kind of attachment can be opened using the computers in the lab. An attachment can be opened with the program that was used to create it. But it would be too expensive to install Word, Excel, Word Perfect and many other programs on all the PCs. Yahoo will view attached Word documents. Click on the "View Attachment" link. Trying to download the file will not work. Hotmail does not have the View feature.

PDF files can be opened by clicking on the attachment. Pictures attached to e-mail messages appear in the body of the message automatically.
