PDF Attachments in Win Live Mail

Since Windows Mail was moved to Windows Live, I can't open PDF attachments to 
emails without moving them to Desktop or somewhere, not directly from 
clicking on the attachment in the email.  This seems uncessary and I must be 
missing something, but I don't know what.

Attachments on OL2003
In OL2003, when an email is printed that contains an attachment, under the "Subject:" line at the top of the email is printed "Attachments: filename.ext".

recovering old E mails
My old computer recently literally "blew up", which prompted me to buy a new Dell computer.

PDF password
Can I send a PDF that requires a password to open? I want to send PDF files to an email account with multiple users, but only want selected users to be able to open the attachment. Outlook has no control over the security of a PDF file, that's handled by the PDF file creation software and the reader, but you can certainly e-mail the file to the recipients.

Good staff wanted to create a PDF in Visual C + +. Net, it would contain information from the database. He has to print what is in the form windows... dataset to pdf or GridView to pdf Is this a question? Does it have a point? Would it matter if the staff was evil? Do they still want to? If the question is "How can I create a PDF file?" the answer is to get any number of PDF printer drivers and simply open one and print to it. Alternatively, you can look for any number of open-source PDF converter. Google would be a good start. joe On Sun, 9 Mar 2008 16:49:01 -0700, Ma...

Windows Mail stripping attachments from one sender only
