Email downloads in Outlook Express

Have Windows XP in 256 RAM with 60 G storage with Athlon2200. Was using the email program in Verizon DSL but experienced difficulty as that platform seems unstable. Started using Outlook Express but received emails with attachments that Outlook deleted or would not open. Is there a way to disable that feature of Outlook?

when you open outlook express you have to go tools, options and click on the security tab and uncheck the box that says don't open attachments that may contain a virus. its something along those lines anyway. Donald
