    yahoo mail - can't open files

    Our head is having a problem where he can't open attachments directly from the e-mail he receives them from when using yahoo mail. He has to save the document and open it that way.

    Does anyone know why this may be?

    Is your internet filtering getting in the way? Some problem with file associations? Which browser is he using?
