i have outlook express 5 with w98se, is it possible to setup oe so that it automatically blocks any message with any specified attachment i don't want to see, i.e. .pif .scr .exe etc.

thanks for any help

If you're trying to do this as an anti-virus measure, it's unnecessary - just keep an up to date AV program and it will detect any viruses using such attachment methods, before they even get into your inbox.

Try opening oe, then go into tools > options > security. In oe6 there's an option to block attachments that could be a virus. May be the same for oe5

As Diesee says it's better to have an up to date AV proggie
