Hi There, I have just recieced some E-Mails with attached pics, when I try to open them I get a message that says "OE removed accsess to the following unsafe attachment ". I have had pics like this before but never had this problem, I'am sure someone out there can tell me what I have to tweak, and I would be very appreciative.

Were you expecting the pictures?

To get access to the attachments, open OE then go :-
Tools / Options and go to the Security tag. Untick the tick box next to "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus".
Only advisable to do this if you have a good updated anti virus running.

In outlook,click tools/options/security.Untick the box that says do not allow attachments to be saved or opened.Be wary tho if your not sure who the email is from.If in doubt,just delete

If you just want to view these attachments as a one off without changing the settings, an easy work-around is to select or open the email and then click on Forward (but don't actually send the email). OE will then let you open the attachment. This is a bit of a security flaw really, but that's life.
