Outlook Express attached image file-names greyed out?

by seafox13 / June 3, 2004 2:46 PM PDT

Off the cuff, does anybody know which setting in OE causes an incoming image attachment file name to be greyed out and unable to be saved to disk for resizing? Thanks.

With outlook express open click tools then options then the security tab. Now uncheck the box that says "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be dangerous." That should now allow you to save them for resizing or anything else.
Glad I could help!

Thanks Shane!
