    why do attachments rec'd on my mac(10.4.11) through aol have to be downloaded before being opened? Then you have to open a zip file or open a variety of folders before you get to the item sent. Other computers allow you to just click on the attachment and the file opens immediately.
    Thanks

    Are you using the Mac OS X Mail application to read your AOL email?

    If you are using the AOL for Mac application, maybe that's why the attachments are being downloaded differently.

    Read this tutorial I wrote a couple of years ago on how to setup AOL with Mac OS X Mail.
