    I have had 2 e-mails in the last 2 days that the attachment has been blocked. The message in the attachment window is "OE removed access to the following unsafe attachment in your e-mail". I know the sender well and at least one of the messages was written by the sended so I know it was not something that had been forwarded all around the web picking up a virus. Do I have a setting wrong? Why can I not access these attachments?

    Hi blh102444

    In Outlook Express,
    Tools > Options > Security tab
    Uncheck: Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus
    Apply, OK to save and close.

    Let us know if that works for you.
