    I'm sorry if this problem has been addressed already, I got to page three and saw nothing like it so I gave up.

    I have no problems receiving e-mails ( I generally have to check as I have had problems receiving data in the past ), other than being generally slow to come through.

    I spent a couple of days updating Win2k from SP1 to SP4 and all the other goodies that come along with it, Outlook Express included.

    Since then, all e-mail with attachments that I have received have not allowed me to open the attachments as a single file - away from the e-mail itself.

    Let me explain: These files appear to be coming through - images that are to open in the email itself as a general graphic appear...you can see them there. However once you click on the paper clip, and the drop down list appears all the attachments in the e-mail are dulled out or "false" ... they cannot be opened. It is the same with all files...

    Also, above the sender details highlighted in yellow the text "OE removed access to the following unsafe attachments in your mail: (attachment names) ".

    I do not recall ever telling Outlook Express to do this, I didn't even realise Outlook could do that!

    I really hope that made sense :( .

    If anyone has any idea why this is occuring I would be so grateful for your help.
