Outlook Express removed access to the following unsafe attachments in your mail
If receive this error with attachments in Outlook Express, here’s how you fix it:
Outlook Express 6 has quite a few security enhancements that are good, but with some of the latest security patches OE has become so hyperactive with blocking everything that even having an attachment has become useless.
To view the attachments that Outlook Express has deemed “unsafe” do this:
- Open Outlook Express
- Click Tools->Options
- Click the Security tab
- Uncheck the Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus box
- Click OK.
If you’re opening an executable, be absolutely sure that it’s safe. I never open an exe unless I know exactly what it is, and was expecting it.
