Hope you have successfully removed the offending item , however this is a warning to you.You say "unknown source" and then "tried to open it,then tried to save it" NEVER open emails from a source of which you know not especially if they have attachments.If it is an important document for you then you will probably recognise the name of the sender , and if you don't then simply delete 'cuz it just 'aint worth it.If it is an important document that is meant for you then it will find it's way either by letter or phone call if the sender doesn't get an acknowledgement from you via email so don't worry to much if you think you've deleted a genuine contact.

If you DISABLE the Outlook Express Preview Pane (should be a permanent move) you can view suspicious messages.

Providing the Preview Pane is disabled, highlight an e-mail with one click, right click and then select Properties.

You can now read the header and, by clicking on Message Source, the message itself.

Then Cancel as necessary and, if the e-mail is doubtful, whilst it is still highlighted use the Tool Bar Delete button to delete it.

It's having the Preview Pane enabled that can allow unwanted nasties to do their business - just one click on an infected e-mail can let them loose.....:-(
