How to keep link Hotspots from opening in Internet Explorer?

My company just migrated from Outlook to Lotus Notes 6.5 and we are struggling on some basic issues. For instance, when someone opens a link to a PowerPoint (.ppt) document from a Lotus Notes e-mail, it opens with Internet Explorer. How do we get this file to open using PowerPoint instead of Internet Explorer?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I believe that’s a function of the PC, not Lotus Notes. Check any .ppt file that you have saved on your hard drive to see what program it’s set to open with. Right click on the file and select “Properties” to see. Your PC could be defaulting to IE. Changing the file association for one file sets the property for all files with the same extension.

    Hello C2c have you checked the association of this file extension? Righ click on a PPT file, choose open with and check that the default program corresponds to PowerPoint; even if you see it correctly setup choose PowerPoint and check "Always uses this program.."
