Attachments

I recently downloaded a Windows update and since then I have been unable to open attachments sent with e mails. The following message appears within the e mail header:
OE removed access to the following unsafe attachments.

Is there any way that I can prevent this happening? Previously, I used to save the attachment and only open them after it had been checked for viruses.

Thanks in anticipation.

In OE, Tools/Options, security tab and untick the "block attachments..." box.

In OE go to Tools > Options > Security tab and untick the option "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened....etc."

Many thanks to you both - I've done what you've suggested AND everything's OK. (What a quick response - excellent website). Thanks again
