    I have recently starting receiving e-mails from a reliable friend who is attempting to send me video attachments. I am unable to open them, and instead I get a message that "Outlook Express has removed access to the following unsafe attachments". How do I open them? Is there some setting to allow me access to these attachments? Thank you.
