E-mail attachments: New Microsoft downloads cause this message: "OE removed ... unsafe attachments ...
Posted on 2003-03-17
With the most recent Microsoft downloads for Windows 98, some of my e-mail attachments cause this message to appear: "OE removed access to the following unsafe attachments in your mail:(There follows the first few words of the attachment title.)
This is happening for both old and newly received attachments. However, not all the attachments are rejected. Some of the rejected attachments are graphic (pictures etc.)but some of the same sorts of graphics have been passed along to me. Some of the text attachments have been rejected, some have not. Some of the attachments are forwards of the internet stuff that is going around and some of this is rejected and again, some is not.
I have the notion that this problem may have to do with the method or form used to send the e-mail because all of the attachments, regardless of kind, sent from one person will be ok. Whereas the same kind of material from another person will be rejected.
I would like to know how to access both my old and my new e-mail attachments.
