I'm running on Windows ME. I find in Outlook Express that I'm unable to open all attachments sent via email. The paper clip icon is there but nothing appears when I clic on it. This is not common to one email sender but on all. I am on Ntl 600kps broadband. My system has Zone Alarm Pro installed.
Why should this suddenly start to malfunction, or have I clicked on somthing that I shouldn't? Can anyone help?

Open Outlook Express, go to Tools > Internet Options > Security, untick the box marked 'Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus'.

Note that you really should have a good, up-to-date virus checker installed before you do this.

If you just want to bypass the protection on an occasional basis, for attachments that you are absolutely certain are virus-free, there is a simple workaround. Just click the message once, then click 'Forward'. You will then be able to access the attachment.
