    i have sent several e-mails with attachments (pdf, xls). The recipient got them okay and could open them (on w2k & office 2000). But when I went to my "Sent Items" folder, to check on something I had written in one of the attachments, I could not open the atttachment from within the saved e-mail. There is a message in the space where the attachment should be listed which says, "OE removed access to the following unsafe attachments in your mail..." and then the name of the file "letter.pdf"

    How can I get rid of that security feature? Where can it be turned off so that i can read the attachments I sent myself!

    I am using windows xp and office xp.

    Thanks
    Paul

    if you are using outlook express then tools/option/security and untick do not allow attachments........


    OE thinks all attachments are unsafe and blocks them all
