    Hi, I’m new to this site, so please bear with me if I ask something mundane, but I did search and couldn’t find anything relating to my issue.

    Using Outlook 2000, windows XP home , standalone PC email and Internet through Orange( fsnet)

    About 2 weeks ago I get the above message every time I move though my inbox or for that matter any other box ( deleted, Sent etc )

    I’ve looked on the Microsoft site and it says change the attachment security settings ( which doesn’t do anything) or don’t use Iris Spyware/antivirus software ( which I don’t and have never done )

    It even comes up with the message if I open an email that doesn’t have an attachment I.e. HTML only text)

    Any help would be gratefully appreciated

    PS Haven’t added or deleted any software or reconfigured anything that I know of )

    thanks in advance

    As far as I know it is a setting, but for the life of me can't remember where it is. Look under your options. You are looking for something like: disable attachments
    Sorry can't remember exactly what it is but I am pretty sure that it is a setting under options.

    I had the same problem last night and finally figured out what it was.

    In Outlook, while viewing a list of messages in, say, your inbox, right-click the message and choose View Attachments.

    On mine, I noticed that those that were giving me errors had certification attachments that were from my antivirus software.

    I was running AVG anti-virus free version 7.5. A new version, 8.0, had come out, but I hadn't upgraded. I uninstalled the old version and installed the new on and the problem went away!

    My guess is that Grisoft changed something related to its certification attachments.

    I'd be interested to see if this was your problem.
