If i get messages in my e-mail box with attachments i can't open them because outlook does not open any attachments. I have tried to change this but it won't help. I also use a virusscan on my computer and also a virusscan online from my provider to protect against virusses in my mailbox before the come into the mailbox.But i still want to open the attachments but outlook won't open any.

although Tufenuf is likely correct you are far less than loquacious in your problem description.

If Tufenuf's advice is TRIED and doesn't solve your specific problem, it could be that you are lacking the software necessary to open the attached file.

If Tufenuf's advice doesn't help AFTER you TRY his suggestion, please tell us EXACTLY what happens when you do try to open an attachment and the FULL NAME of the attached file.
