    This is the error message I get on all e-mails sent to me in Outlook Express that include an attachement. I can open them on my webmail e-mail account though.
    OE removed access to the following unsafe attachements in your mail

    How can I correct this.
    Thanks, Al

    Start Outlook Express.
    Click on the Tools> Options> Security tab, uncheck the box:
    Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus
    under Virus Protection, and then click OK.
    Close Outlook Express and should take effect next time you open Outlook Express.
