What happens if you save the attachment and click on it in Explorer?

And are you sure the filename is
:read html
It's invalid filename (filenames can't contain a colon). Please give the full filename from Explorer, including extension (set Explorer options to NOT hide extensions of known file types).

Look under Outlook Express "tools-options-security" is the box checked that says Do not save or open attachments that may contain viruses?
If so uncheck this box. (And be carefull)
