Encrypted Attachments in Windows Live Mail Are Not Visible
Posted on 2009-02-09
I'm running Windows Live Mail on both XP and Vista 32-bit systems. I have configured both versions of Live Mail to use digital certificates to enable signing and encrypting emails and attachments. I'm using the latest updates to all software.
I can send signed, encrypted, and signed and encrypted emails and receive all of them without a problem on the systems. However, when I include an attachment (a PDF file), the message body comes through OK but the attachment does not show up. I have no problem with encrypted attachments in Outlook 2003 and 2007. My Live Mail is configured as follows for the Safety Options:
General Tab: Junk E-Mail protection = Low, no other boxes checked
Select the Internet Explorer security zone to use = Internet Zone
Do not allow attachments to be ssaved or opened that could potentially be a virus = Not checked
Download Images: Block images = not checked
The appropriate Digital IDs are present and set for email use.
I've even added the sender to my Safe Senders list.
What can I do to get attachments to show when the whole email is encrypted?
Thanks for your help
