How to fix my attachments?

Question

How do I get my documents to attach to my e-mails? After I hit the attach button, I keep getting the message "There was temporary problem uploading your file. Please try again in a few minutes." I've closed out of the word document and tried to attach it that way and still no results.

Someone's sent you a file which was created using a program which you don't have on your computer

(Read) For some reason, your computer has 'misread' the type of file that the attachment is - i.e someone sends you a Word file, but your computer seems to think it's a graphics file

(Read) Someone sent you a file without a file extension in the filename

(Read)You did something terrible in a previous life, and this is your punishment
