    I have developed a problem with my e-mail. I am using
    Outlook Express to view my email. My problem developed
    recently. When someone sends an e-mail with an attachment
    I get the following error message. "OE removed access to the following
    unsafe attachment in the mail." I know the attachments my friends
    are sending me are safe.

    Does anyone know how to correct this problem?

    it's probably the security option has been changed.......

    1. Open OE
    2. Click Tools, point to Options, and then click the Security tab.
    3. Uncheck "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus."
    4. Click OK
