Outlook unable to read *.mdb attachments

There was a message sent to me that contains blabla.mdb file attachment and my Outlook says "Outlook blocked access to the following potentially unsafe attachments: blabla.mdb" and does not allow me to view or save the file. Many thanks to Microsoft, but I want to make such decisions on my own. How can I view this file?

Go under TOOLS--> OPTIONS ---> then click on SECURITY tab.  UNCHECK the heading that reads, "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus.  You probably upgraded to outlook express 6 and it is installed be defualt this way.

I do not have "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that..." check box under TOOLS/OPTIONS/SECURITY. I'm running Outlook 2000 SR-1 (9.0.0.4527). Is it too old or too new?
