Outlook Express blocks e-mail attachments

In the last few months, several e-mail attachments that have been sent from friends (jokes etc)have been blocked by Outlook Express.

The caption on the e-mail says "OE removed access to the following unsafe attachments in your mail"

I have the latest Norton Antivirus set to auto-update, and all incoming mail is scanned.

Can I cancel this blocking from Outlook Express, and how do I do it.

Regards

Sorry, but stupid old me has just sorted it out from the security options panel in OE. I have un-ticked the box saying "block all attachments that MIGHT, JUST MIGHT contain a virus.

It's a common question in the forums...:-)

The OE option is pretty useless in any case and is best left disabled.
