Hi, glitterchic, you know; it could be
that the sender just didn't attach what was
needed appropriately. Is it only mail from this person?
Check to see if Outlook Express removed the attachment
due to a virus, etc., and make sure that your firewall
has not blocked access to your email. Maybe
this info. will help.... Scott9

Check your security settings. Go to tools, options then security. Remove the check mark concerning attachments if you want to receive them all.

its probably the way your options are Set up, but is actually doing you a favor. The best way to send anything by e-mail is as a picture added to the text . Sending attachment today is like a dirty word with all the virus they can carry along with them..When I see an attachment I just delete it...Frank:-)
