Is this a java question ? If so, how are you using java to open the attachment ?

I just worked on this for another poster in europe and found that the underlying document architecture is difficult to open with java due to commercial implemetnation of the Styled Document view.

How are you going about this and what have you done so far ?

Hotmail never opens any e-mail attachments. It's your browser that does that. What happens instead of a PowerPoint presentation opening on your computer? (You do have PowerPoint installed, don't you?)
I agree. Here's the link:
