I have lost my ability to see attachments when viewing my e-mail through Outlook Express. Also when I try to send an attachment it doesn't show. However, they are there... just no icon. Any ideas would be appreciated! Thank you!

You should use "Western European (ISO)" for Encoding. Places to check this in OE5:
- Tools, Options, Send, International
- Tools, Options, Read, Font
- Tools, Options, Read, International
- When composing a message, look in Format, Encoding

Good luck,

Check this setting in OE.

Do not allow Attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus.

If it is checked, which if you are using OE6 it is checked by default, you can uncheck it and see if that will make a difference. You might need to send a test message to yourself to see.

Also, keep in mind that this opens up your computer more to virii, so keep that virus scanner up to date.

It is fixed...thank you for your help. I ended up going back into Windows Updates and reinstalled OE6 through customized settings and it worked. ;)
Thanks, again!
