Attachments "unsafe" according to OE

  jeano 03:20 03 May 05

I frequently get the message that "OE has removed access to the following unsafe attachments in your mail: [filename]"

These can be any file type and have usually come from a trusted source. How can I prevent this happening? For example, a PC helpdesk recently sent me a user guide (pdf file) and this was blocked as well as application forms in word format from my local tennis club!

I am using Windows XP and Service Pack I. I also use Norton Internet Security Professional 2004 to scan incoming emails.

OE Tools / Options /Security. Untick the box "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus"
