Cool, ok.

Open up Outlook Express.

Go to Tools/Options.

Click on the Security tab.

Take a screenshot (http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/setup/tips/screenshot.mspx), upload it to ImageF1 (http://imagef1.net.nz/) and post the link to it here.

Cicero Try right click the file and save as, save it to your HDD and then maybe your default file viewer will open it. Or drop it on IE

Do you have another email addy you could forward that email to? Gmail for instance? That would help figure out exactly what the problem is.

OK, maybe they are linked to a website or something silly. Sorry I couldn't help you.

This is the only email your having problems with, right?
