    NATTY BONGO,

    Welcome to TSG!!!!

    Your problem is most likely with your Outlook Express email settings. Open OE, go to tools, options and click on the security tab. Uncheck "Do not allow files to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus". Once this is done click apply. I also advise you turn OFF the preview pane by opening IE and going to View, layout and uncheck the preview pane. Having an item previewed is the same as opening it!! Also ensure your virus scanner is 100% up to date at ALL times.

    SeeYa

    It is in outlook express not internet explorer. Open your mail program and you should be able to find it.

    I would like to thank you all very much.
    I went to a well know nation wide COMPUTER STORE on LONG ISLAND. They said , "we would have to send your computer to another location to have a SENIOR TECH look at it".
    I found you guys through a YAHOO SEARCH.
    Happy to be here.
    Thanks alot. I will be reading many of your treads to gain more experience.

    If you have unchecked show preview Pain then the header will not show.

    If you just untick header, then pain will show but header won't

    I have deliberately spelled pain cos it is a bl**dy pain

    If I am on the internet and want to be notified when new e-mail arrive , how can I achieve that. Like a voice saying "you have mails ** you have mails".
    I use windows XP and verizon DSL.
