how do i unlock the xp office outlook attachments restriction.

I know we had threads on this before but the search option in the form does not seem to be working

In Outlook Express 6 its in

Tools / Options / Security

Then theres a tick box for do not open attachments that could be a virus. Should imagine it would be in roughly the same place in your version. Hope this helps

Something like Tools/Options/Security

go to tools, options, security and uncheck the box "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus". Guess you ought to be confident of your AV protection first!

I have gone tools-options-security-where do i go from here can't see the option!

In outlook 6, the top half of the box from tools, options, security is headed "virus protection". For me, its then the second check box, beneath one about warning when other applications try to send mail as me.

There is a box on the security tab that is probably ticked with the words"Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened.............etc"

Untick it click apply then ok and robert is your mothers brother.
