Hello Friends,

I use outlook express 6 for checking my emails.

I am not able to view any attachment sent to my email. Whenever I open a mail containing an attachment I get the following message

" OE removed access to the unsafe attachments in your mail: filename "

Though I am able to see the text in the message. But I am not getting the attachment file. All the emails having attachment show the same above message. I am attaching a screeshot of the error.




Please help me in rectifying the error.

Thank You
Rishi Ratta

In OE, go TOOLS-OPTIONS-SECURITY

Untick the option "Prevent any attachments from being opened or saved that might............" or words to that effect.

Can't be exact as I never use OE, but the option is enabled by default.

I had this same problem when I changed my computer last year. I had it set up by the techs where I bought it and I couldn't open any e-mail attachments, they were light gray so not clickable.

I don't know if that was the default setting or they just did that because I had a virus before and thought it would protect me better. I looked around in options and found what Kiwiguy said and that did the trick. Good luck.
