Ever since I downloaded the latest Microsoft updates for Outlook Express, I have been unable to open any attachments sent with emails. I get an error message saying "OE removed access to unsafe attachments....etc". I have Windows 98. Please can you help me!

In outlook express, click Tools > Options > Security tab Uncheck the box "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potenitially be a virus."

very close damole1 (depending on OE version)

actually you will need to goto:
Tools - Options - Security Tab
change from "Restricted Sites Zone" to "Internet Zone"
Hey people,

No comment has been added in roughly 1 year, so it's time to clean up this TA.
I will leave a recommendation in the Cleanup topic area that this question
be PAQ'd and pts split between damole1 and ViRoy.
Please leave any comments here within the next seven days.
