    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

    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.
