    Possible issue could be the security setting in Outlook express
    Open OE
    go to tools > options > security
    uncheck " Donot allow attachments to be saved or opened which could potentially be a virus"

    Press OK to close that options window..

    Now go to that email , click on the paper clip and see if you can see the attachment
