Select the email and choose to Forward it - the attachment will then be visible.

Note that the above option is one workaround for the security settings in OE that tries to protect users from themselves.

If you have a decent, frequently updated antivirus program, then open OE, go to Tools > Options > Security, and deselect the option 'Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened...'.

In OE click Tools/Options and the Security tab. Uncheck "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus"

Use this fix with caution unless you know the attachment is safe. TC.
