    I use outlook express 6 on a xp machine, and i seem to have a prob.

    Basically i have a email with a file attached ( tutorial for frontpage ) i want to save the attachment to my desktop.

    But i dont seem to have that option, i looked in FILE and it wont let me save it to desktop, the option to save attachment is ghosted out?

    If i highlite the paperclip i can see the file but if i click on it it wont open, if i right click nothing happens and the save attachment option is ghosted?

    Can anyone help me out here?


    thx...rob

    Have you unchecked the New security option in OE that blocks attachments it deems possibly hostile?
    Tools\Options\Security and uncheck the block attachments box.
