Recently I had a local computer shop reformat my hard drive, but I asked that my email be saved. My email was saved alright, but now I can't access any of the attachments received both before and after the formatting. Invariably a message appears above the "from" line: "OE removed access to the following unsafe attachments in your mail:" followed by the filename of the attachment.

I am pretty confident that OE is overreacting: I am getting the attachments from reputable people who use AV software and would be very embarassed to think that they were sending unsafe stuff to me.

I am using OE6 with Norton AV and firewall.

Can anyone help me regain access to my email attachments?

Thank you,
Robert

Go to tools / options / security tab and uncheck the "do not allow attachments that may harm mt computer box " as well you may have to get those emails resent..

Thank you Motherboard: your solution worked, and I was able to view the copy of an obituary notice of a recently deceased uncle sent to me by a relative.

I much appreciate your help!

All best to you,
Robert
