    Default Unsafe Atachments in OE

    Hello people I need help please.

    Since a catastrophic computer smoke up which involved buying a new HDD and every thing except the case I now have the following problem.
    On outlook express when I get an e-mail with attachment OE says I cant have it. Just under the toolbar on the e-mail it has the following blurb:

    OE removed access to the following unsafe attachments in your mail pirtek race car 23.01 jpg as an example. I.
    also wont let me receive excel files.
    I have W98SE oe6 28 I have installed a new version of NAV but have selected e-mail scanning off but to no avail.
    Thanks for your time.

    Hi Ted

    In Outlook Express, go to Tools > Options > Security tab. Remove the tick beside "Do not allow attachments to be saved ......."

    Within Outlook Express click on TOOLS | OPTIONS | SECURITY

    Under Security there is a radio button for "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that potentially could be a virus" Take the checkmark (click the radio button) from this option and OK your way back out.

    Cheers, Babe.

    Go Tools > Options > Security Tab & uncheck "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus" and all your attachments will be available.

    I think you probably know how to fix this now.

    If MS had put some simple instructions with the message it would have been a big help to the millions of people that have had to seek advice as to why they could not view attachments in OE 6 but I suppose it would be too much to expect MS to do something simple and logical.
