    Some genius decided that I should not see certain part of my incoming e-mails. It's not porno or anything like that. It's from people and businesses with which I correspond. I know I can click on the warning to get some of the info back but not all af it. I shouldn't have to deal with that, it's a nuisance. How can I make it so that this doesn't interfere with my life?

    Thank you for helping me.

    Sorry if I insult your intelligence but if you are talking about attachments.
    Tools>options>Security. Untick "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus".

    Bill,
    After Outlook Express is opened it's the very first thing that comes to the screen, depending on which message is highlighted. If there are other items in the main text (not neccessarily pictures) with the message those items show up as a small square with a red X inside.

    In addition to what "Bicycle Bill" posted, Tools>Options>Security tab>UNCHECK "Block images and other external content in HTML mail" and click OK.

    If neither of those solve the problem, please post the exact message you are getting.
