Unable to read e-mails re ActiveX controls

I have Win XP Home,IE8 and Outlook Express.
An important e-mail cannot be read as I get the following message :- One or more Active X controls could not be displayed because either :
1)Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this page or
2)You have blocked a publisher of one of the controls.
As a result the page may not be displayed correctly (which it isn`t,in fact not at all)
Active X controls are a complete mystery to me so any help to resolve this problem will be much appreciated.
