I cannot open the attachment to my email message which is in BMP form?
I received an email that has an attachment in BMP form, but whenever I open it... I cannot view it because it says "Preview not available"
Need this image asap, so what's the trick?

open the e-mail and save the attachment to your hard drive. Right click on the file you saved and choose "open with:" and choose paint. You should see the image.

Well, you are trying to open a Bitmap file which is abbreviated by BMP. It is not a very common form of saving an attachment as people usually use Word or if it is a picture, they use a jpg. file.
Anyway, you evidently do not have the supported software to open it. Can you email the sender and have them re-send it in another format? They can easily save it as another file so that you can access it.
I'm not a computer guru but I have had similar experiences. You may also scan the net to seek further info about being able to open a bitmap file. You may actually have to purchase additional software.
