Windows 7: Windows Live Mail Attachments

Windows Live Mail Attachments

When I get mail with an '.eml' attachment I can not open the attachment to display the content. I have check the file associations and '.eml' is associated with Windows Live Mail 2011.
If I save attachment and try opening, it will open Windows Live Mail but does not display the message or content.
Didn't have this problem prior to upgrading to Windows Live Mail 2011 from previous version of Windows Live Mail.
I also have unchecked the box under Options/Safety Options/Security to allow opening and saving attachments that may be harmful.

Just for fun, try the default programs dance. Control Panel>>Default Programs>>Last item ( defaults)>>choose your mail program (NOT my current...).

Thanks, that fixed it. I had same type problem earlier and ended up restoring a week old backup to fix it. Was almost ready to do it again.

Thanks again
