Text File Attachments in Outlook Express are no longer received
Posted on 2001-06-09
I receive daily e-mail news from the Ecological
Society of America (LISTSERV@UMDD.UMD.EDU) in the form of attachments that used to show as files at the bottom of the e-mail.
These no longer show, and I am no longer able to read them.
The error message that came when it first happened referred to the vcardfile - but I accidentally clicked it off before reading and recording the details.
Three things that might help:
1. I have recently had to reinstall Windows 95. However this problem did not eventuate until several weeks after this.
2. The problem arose immediately after I removed the two visual basic file types off the list of registered file types in windows explorer (Windows Explorer/View/Folder Options/File Types).
3. I uninstalled outlook express 5.5 and re-installed it (from the Microsoft site); this did not work.
Will I need to uninstall IE5.5, and re-install it, to restore the file associations; or is there something else going on here?
