    james ciofu bashed at the keyboard and said :

    After you install Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1 (SP1) or Windows XP SP1
    (both of which include Outlook Express 6 SP1), access to some of your e-mail
    attachments in Outlook Express may be removed.

    In Outlook Express go to:

    Tools > Options > Security: and uncheck "Do not allow attachments to be
    saved or opened that could potentially be a virus".

    You will be able do open viruses and Trojans to your computer then by
    clicking on attachments unless you have a good anti-virus software.

    *Scan them before you open them*

    More about that in the MS Knowledge base:

    *Blocked attachments*

    MS has now set OE to block all attachments.

    See these articles for explanations:

    *Cannot Open E-Mail Attachments in Outlook Express After You Install SP1*
    http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=329570

    *OLEXP Using Virus Protection Features in Outlook Express 6 (Q291387)*
    http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q291/3/87.ASP



    You may need to read this next bit also:

    *Why some file types and not others*

    That's a decision Microsoft has made.

    Fortunately, if you disagree, it is possible to add or subtract file types
    from the Internet Explorer unsafe file list.

    In Control Panel, double-click the Folder Options icon.
    On the File Types tab, scroll through the list and highlight the file type,
    for example PDF, and click Advanced.
    Remove the tick in the box marked "Confirm open after download".

    Now you can have Outlook Express disallowing access to potentially unsafe
    files, but excluding Adobe's PDF files.

    Enjoy :)
