Have you recently upgraded to OE 6.0? If so, go to Tools > Options > Security and remove the tick from beside "remove unsafe attachments etc ...". See if this helps.

Hey - Thanks for that - can now open - BUT I guess I'm vulnerable to 'suspicious' attachments now.

As long as you save your attachments to your hard drive and scan them with an up-to-date anti-virus program before opening the attachments your computer should be safe from viruses.

That is true .. you will need to apply commonsense to opening any attachment as you should do normally anyway. If in doubt save it to your hard drive and then right-click on the file name and select your Antivirus scanner program to check it out before opening it. :)

MS went a bit overboard with preventing people from opening up their jpg attachments with this *security* feature.

Or put the tick back, and only untick when you have a .jpg file to look at. :D
