Default attachment not opening in email

Whenever I try to open an atachment in my email like say file.ppt, the system shows a dialog box with the options Open,Save and Cancel.
When I use the Open option, the system displays a message like "c:\Documents and Settings\Questionbob\Temporary internet files\content.IE5\file[1].ppt not found".
But this does not happen when I use the save option.
Can anyone offer some help on this?
Thank u

there's no real problem here since when you save it to your computer you can then excess it,

is it a web based e-mail account?, the problem is on their side then and nothing is up with your computer, so I wouldn't worry,

it simply requires you to have the file on your computer before you can open it,

try creating a new account with the provider or with another provider if this is really annoying you,

my e-mail account would not let me open an attachment at all, it just enlarged the attachment icon instead of opening it, I send the email to my account and it opened up fine, it is just misprogrammed coding or a bug.
