E-mail attachments: New Microsoft downloads cause this message: "OE removed ... unsafe attachments ...

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.

See if this does the trick

Go to the menu Tools > Options and

click on the Security tab

then uncheck the box

"Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus"

Greetings, Meryl!
  With Internet Explorer SP1, Microsoft added a security option to not let attachment through. You can change the option at the Option menu. Select Tools > Options > Security. Uncheck the box next to Do not allow attachment. Click OK.

Best wishes, war1

First - thanks to all who offered the same solution which worked perfectly.

I am new to this site. I wanted to give both the experts some points because, as you state, the answers were essentially the same. Hoping the program would divide the point, I tried to click on both experts one after the other. War1 was the one the program accepted.

At this point I would guess that the first one to post an answer is the one who should get the points even though only seconds separate the answers.

Ok thanks for coming back and letting us know. Currently the only way to split points is by doing the following. However since you have already awared the points then this is just for future reference.

Post a 0 point question in Community Support and tell them what you want to do. In your question provide them with the link to this question so they know which question you are referring to. :>)

Next time this comes up I'll try that. There is one thing that still confuses me: Why are there 10 points posted for me to use in the applications area when the minimum necessary is 20. Is this an advertising teaser?

Also, as a marketing strategy you might think about the following: I post a question and the experts quote me a price. If I accept, I key in the credit card numbers and I get my answer. This would be useful for the more occasional user like me because I don't think I would fully utilize a monthly, semi annual, or annual subscription. Even the 1000 points for $9.95 is seem to me a possible waste.

This service might turn out to be the best thing since sliced bread and I might be asking daily questions but I need a no lose way to get started.

Also, for those with a threadbare bank account, the benefits would be real.

CrazyOne,

Points for you at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/Win98/Q_20558173.html

Meryl,

You get 5 points per day. When you asked this question, you used all 70 of the points you receive when you sign up, but have gotten 15 points since then. If you need more points, go to http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/memberSurvey.jsp and fill out the new member survey for an additional 200 points.

There is very little likelihood that EE will ever offer a "pay Experts for questions" option. For one thing, the bookkeeping for a million members would be a nightmare.

The best thing for you, however, will be to take a look at questions in the topic areas, and start leaving comments. As you learn, you'll also hit a few and earn some Expert points. When you hit 10,000 and get 3,000 in a month, you qualify for free Premium Services, which is 2,500 question points a month.
