Default viewing powerpoint attachements

Are you supposed to be able to view these with a blackberry straight out of the box? Everytime I get an email with a .pps attachement, I can never find an option to open attachment. Is there some setting I need to initialize or third party application to install?

Can't open PPS, only PPT. PPS is a slideshow view. If you get a PPT, you can see the outline of the presentation, but not the graphical view. As I recall, there's some third-party software out there that will shrink down the presentation so that you can see a graphic of the slide, but don't remember who makes it...

I can view powerpoint presentations on my 8700c in outline or slideshow mode. We are running the latest version of BES.

I don't know if it's just the 8703e (vzw - bes) but I've never had any issues reading ppt or pps files in the full graphical mode.

just confirm once that they are not sent from Vista. From what I know, the 2007 version may have an issue with BB desktop view.
