Hello again!

I'm using Incredimail and now when people send attachments and I try to open them Outlook Express 6.0 opens them and then displays this message at the top of the email....

OE removed the following usafe attachments in your email:

Well, when it does that it removes the entire email.

What's causing this and how can I remedy it?

P.S. It only does it with some attachments.

Please help,

And as always, may God bless,
Peter

In OE:

Tools - Option - Security

Uncheck the option "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus"

Its Microsofts way of protecting people from e-mail infections.
Only attachments that have the potential for carrying code will be blocked.

I simply avoid using any Microsoft e-mail program, not because they are bad or because they are MS, but simply because they are targets for every virus writer out there. Its for these reasons MS have enabled this option by default. I aso avoid Incredimail, as most businesses (and more and more individuals) I deal with block any HTML code for safety reasons, which negates the use of it.
