I am trying to open an e-mail that has and attachment. I get a message stating "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Set Association control Panel." How do I go about this so I can read my e-mail attachments?

What filename extension does it have (ie the last 3 letters after the dot)?

This identifies what type of file it is & what application you need to open it.
It may be you don't have the required application installed.

Since you haven't replied to my post, perhaps you are awaiting instructions to your specific question:

How To Set Up File Type Associations:

1. Click the 'Start' button, then click "Default Programs" in the right-hand pane.

2. Click "Associate a file type or protocol with a program"

I just noticed your topic title, the attachment is a .doc file. You should have mentioned that in the body of your post & I would have seen it the first time.

You need Microsoft Word to open this. It's part of the Microsoft Office package.

If you don't have Microsoft Word you can download a free "Word Viewer" from Microsoft.
It will open .doc files but it cannot be used to create a .doc file.
