When I receive email attachments on my iMac saved as "docx", I can't open them, i.e. the file is empty when I open it.  On my iPad I can open them.  Why?

I can't open them without buying software when the same emails on my iPhone have the attachment as a PDF and open?  Thanks
Acrobat PDF files open with Preview which is already installed on the Mac.

    Why do I sometimes receive email attachments in the body of the email and how can I download and print from there?

    To save attachments, a couple of options include: (1) control-click on attachment, select "Save Attachment...", (2)  Click on "Show Details" in the upper right corner of the message, which then gives you some attachment functions including "Save".

  • I suddenly can't receive emails from senders at a particular domain.  They can receive emails from me.  I haven't blocked them.  Any suggestions on how to 'reopen the line' will be appreciated, thanks.

    Contact iCloud support. Apple's spam filters may have detected spam coming from users on that domain and blocked all email from it.

  • After installing the new Yosemite OS on my iMac I can no longer send email. I can receive email, but not send. I use gmail and can send email on the gmail (google) site, but not on "mail" on my iMac. Any others with this problem? What should we do?

    After installing the new Yosemite OS on my iMac I can no longer send email. I can receive email, but not send. I use gmail and can send email on the gmail (google) site, but not on "mail" on my iMac. Any others with this problem? What should we do?

    My gmail, which is correctly configured for Mail with gmail SMTP and Google IMAP, works for awhile on Mail, which I leave open while working on other applications. But several times a day I get msg from Google: "We recently blocked a sign-in attempt to your Google Account" . . . and requiring me to verify my account details, re-enter passwords, confirm security settings (or change them from "disable" to "enable less secure methods" and so on). In Mail I also have tried "taking all accounts online", and re-entering my gmail password inside Mail account settings. These steps successfully re-set comms between gmail and Mail ... for awhile, then it happens again. Enough occurrences over a work day that I just quit Mail and revert to accessing gmail directly. Apple Care advisor and an Apple knowledge base article say that Apple can't deal with this, as gmail is third-party app, and they refer me to gmail, and so far I've found nothing helpful there.
    From today I also have several instances of a window saying "Mail has unexpectedly closed" and asking me to Re-open it.
    I also use Yahoo mail, which stops working with Mac Mail at the same time as gmail, but I do not receive notices to re-verify from Yahoo.
    I recently upgraded from Mavericks to Yosemite. The Mail problem happened occasionally with Mavericks but is far more frequent with Yosemite.

  • I backed up my itunes library to an external drive.It's 119 gb.It took about an hour.When I looked at the files it list the artists and albums but then says the files are empty.On the C drive of my own computer it says they are empty.Why would this be ?

    When I open up my itunes library on my hard drive it says it contains 119 gb.I tried to look up individual songs under each album and artist.Every time I open an album it says the folder is empty.I exported the library earlier to an external hard drive.It took over an hour.When I look on that library it also says the files are empty,yet when open itunes and play songs they are all still there.Why doesn't the library list each song since it says it contains 119gb?

    Niel, I tried that several times but the Choose Library screen never appeared.
    Then try again.
    Make sure iTunes is not running.
    Hold the Option key.
    Click the iTunes icon in the dock.
    Select Choose library...
    Select the iTunes folder you copied to the external
    ITunes would boot up like usual but the only songs listed were in the Cloud.  None of my Apps, Playlists, etc. appeared.
    Because you moved the library and have not yet told iTunes to Choose the library you moved.

  • I have been trying to import VHS video into iMovie via a Hollywood Dazzle bridge.  Did not have trouble until I upgraded to mavericks.  I have a mac book pro, 10.9.1, iMovie 10.0.2.  Says it is recording, but when I go to check, it says the file is empty.

    I have been trying import VHS video into iMovie via a Hollywood Dazzle bridge.  I have been successful doing this in the past, but now it is not working.  I have a mac book pro, 10.9.1, (mavericks), iMovie 10.0.2.  Everything in iMovie looks like it is working.  It reads "recording" in the upper left hand corner of the pane while the video is playing.  When I stop the process to check on my clip it says that the file is empty.  The only thing that has changed since I did it successfully is that I upgraded to mavericks from whatever I had previously.  My system is about one year old.  Any suggestions?

    Hey, Clinton,
         Thanks for your help!  I was able to go to iMovie 9.0.9 and import video.  I was still curious as to why it didn't work in version 10.0.2, so I contacted Apple tech support.  They were't sure at first as to why it wouldn't work, so they had me delete iMovie 10.0.2 and then re-install it just to see if something had gone wrong when it upgraded.  That didn't change anything.  In the end, they determined that 10.0.2 doesn't support the Hollywood Dazzle DV bridge.  But I have a workaround path from them that I will share so that it's possible to import to 9.0.9, then move it to 10.0.2. 
         1.  Open iMovie 9 (finder/applications/iMovie 9.0.9
         2.  Import from Dazzle Bridge to iMovie 9, note which event you are importing the clips into
         3.  Close iMovie 9
         4.  Open iMovie 10 (probably in the dock)
         5.  File/Import Media...navigate to home(this was my name, on the left side of iMovie, under Favorites)/Movies/iMovie events.  Find the event folder that contains your Dazzle clips (tip-try sorting by date modified to look at recent events.) 
         6.  Select the clips and import.  Click the blue "Import Selected" button on the bottom right.
    You may get a message that some files cannot be imported.  Click continue import.  It's a little glitchy.  It imports your clip, and also makes a copy of it, too.  On the copy, the audio is normal, but the video is choppy.  In any case, you would delete the copy, anyway.
    Hope this additional information helps somebody else.  Thanks again, Clinton for helping me!

  • When I save a pdf from Safari 7, the file is empty

    Before I upgraded to MAvericks and Safari 7 I used to be able to save pdfs to my desktop with no problem. However, when I save now, all I get is an icon. When I try to open it, I get the message that the file is empty, and sure enough when I go to info the size of the file is zero.
    As far as I can tell I am doing exactly the same as I was doing before upgrading.
    What is wrong? And idea how I can fix this?

    Better to save files to a designated folder in the Finder then the desktop.
    Desktop preferences may be corrupted.
    Open the Finder. From the Finder menu bar click Go > Go to Folder
    Type or copy paste the following:
    ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.desktop.plist
    Click Go then move the com.apple.desktop.plist file to the Trash
    Try saving a PDF file.

    Hi
    The value of the Channel Strip volume etc is not stored within the C Strip setting, as you have discovered.
    If you really wanted, you could add a Gain plug to the strip, with it set to give the correct output level with the Fader set to 0
    (Or just set the fader manually in MS)

  • DeVry Dropbox will nort reconize word doc as attachments, it claims the file is empty.

    While on DeVry using their website and attempting to use the drop box. I followed their instructions and tried several times to attach a word document to the dropbox but everytime I did it would claim that the file was empty. Had to use internet explorer.

    When you call it the first time, it new Shell() constructs a new Display for you (the default).
    The second time, it gets the default display, but you are in a different Thread now. Since you have to create your widgets in the UI thread, it gives you that error.
    To run code in the UI thread, Display provides two methods:
    display.syncexec(..)and
    display.asyncexec(...)see

  • When I connect my ipad to the computer and click import photos and videos, the computer says that there are no photos or videos on the ipad it says the file is empty I can't even add anything to the file!!!!!

    It looks like the card may be the problem, and your best bet is to try the Card Reader - this will make the card accessible by the Finder and you may be able to drag the pics off to the desktop or, at worst, try recover the pics with an app like MediaRecover

  • Why does Reader XI download email attachments to my Download folder before I am able to print them?

    After last update my Reader XI automatically downloads email attachments (.pdf) to my Downloads folder. I then have to open that file in order to print it.  Before, the attachment would open in Reader and I could print from that direct.

    Windows 8, Firefox email client.  What happens is that I click on attachment links in emails, which are .pdf files.  Instead of a menu allowing opening of the file with Reader, the file gets automatically downloaded to my Downloads folder.  I then have to open that folder, click on the file name... then Reader opens and I can view the file as well as print it from the Reader menu.
