    It might be a long shot, but a file association may have been screwed up. I'd guess the .msg extension is set to open with ppt now.

    If you're using win XP, open my computer, then the C: drive, then click Tools->Folder Options->File types.
    Find .msg files and click "change", then select Outlook or outlook express from the list.
