when i open some attachments on my outlook 2007 it comes up with a different language or symbols instead of letters. How can i fix that.

This behavior is caused due to incorrect file associations. If you try opening attachments with different extensions in a program that doesn"t support the file you will get the content in jebrish and symbols.

To fix it save the attachment to your computer before opening.

Right click on the file->properties and check the file extensions and the default program associated to open with.

You can click on change and select the right program to open with.

For e.g.: - If you are trying to pen a pdf document in word it will not open as the format is not supported by word. Check if you have adobe or acrobat installed.

Right click on the file->properties->change->select Adobe in the list->click ok.
