    I just started using Outlook Express 6 and it is stripping all attachments from my email. I can't seem to find out how to turn this off or at least modify it.

    Can someone point me in the right direction to get this squared away.

    Open it and click on tools / options / security and uncheck the box "Do not allow attachments "

    Just be careful with this. Unlike Outlook, which has reasonably good security options available, Outlook Express allows all attachments through.

    Many are of the type that will run by themselves as soon as they are opened. This is typically how most viruses are spread.
