    I'm helping a friend with an Outlook Express problem, but this one has me stumped. Every message she receives automatically has the flag and the paperclip (for attachments) set. There are no attachments, and no rule has been set up to automatically flag messages. Any suggestions on how to turn off the automatic flag and paperclip? She is running Windows XP and Outlook Express 6.

    Thanks for your response. When I click on Tools/Accounts in OE, however, I only see these tabs All/Mail/News/Directory Serv. Where is the Security section you referred to located?

    Should have been tools/OPTIONS/security.
