You can enable attachments to SAVE and OPEN by doing the following:
1. Open Outlook Express
2. Choose TOOLS -> OPTIONS -> SECURITY
3. Uncheck the option "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus"
4. Click OK
The basic idea is that YOU know that it's safe, but Outlook Express can't read your thoughts. so plays it on the safe site when this option is checked.
Did you miss this option in your search?
I have a PC, operating system Win 98SE. Suddenly the OE is removing access to attachments with my e-mail. The following message appears. "OE removed access to the following unsafe attachments in your mail". This even happens with attachments I know to be safe and I have requested. Is there an OE setting that needs to be reset? I've searched the OE help window and can find nothing.
