Running OE6 in o/s ME. Norton anti-virus and firewall installed.
I have 2 pay as you go ISP's and an hotmail address.
Question : I received e-mails and their attachments in my hotmail address from an AOL.COM user but cannot receive them in OE, the attachments are blank. I tried resending them from my hotmail address to my OE addresses but they are still blank. I tried adjusting the firewall and anti-virus but still no go.
Do I need a special file to receive AOL mail in OE ?
I could send from OE to the AOL address.
Is this a file problem ?
Thanks for any help.

Besides the fact that "AOL Hell" has problems of its own, it has conflicts with other E-mail programs.

Are these messages with attachments that you're expecting from other people? If not, I wouldn't even try to open them, unless you're real anxious to activate a virus.

To Skyman : I have Norton anti-virus and firewall running.

To flavallee :
Yes, I am expecting the mail from someone I know who sent them. This only happens with AOL user, it is not a virus. (Hotmail checks them via Mcaffee, the problem is with receiving them on OE6) However, I could send to him. He does not have digital signature if this could be the cause.
