Hi. I'm having two irritating problems with Outlook Express and was hoping someone had some suggestions.

1. When I reply to a message that has an attachment, the attachment is not included in the reply. I realise that including it may mean that multiple copies of the attachment are floating around, but the current setup means that I can't keep the final e-mail with the all the replies that also has the attachments. I might need 3 copies of the e-mail chain at different points in order to have all of the attachments.

2. Entirely separate problem. When I double click on .pdf attachments to open them, Adobe Photoshop launches instead of Abobe Acrobat. The "file types" set up is proper and if I save the file to my hard drive and double click on it from Windows Explorer, the proper software opens. It's just incide Outlook Express that I have a problem and I can't see how to re-set the defaults.

Thank you!!!!

I can try to help with point number 1. Instead of clicking "reply", try clicking "forward" as it should retain the attachment. The only problem is that you will need to enter in the email address that you are trying to reply to.

Just as a note on that, do not forget that the person you are replying to may not want to be receiving copies of their attachment back as it will be filling up their mailbox.
