    You need to give some more details otherwise it is guesswork

    What email program
    What type of attachment, Word file, picture, pdf etc
    What happens when you try to open/what error do you get

    E--mail Attachment

    The attachment reads as follows-;DOC101215-10.122015084443.PDF. The message I then receive is that I have not got a program to open it.Trust and hope this helps.
