Documents attached to emails cannot be opened

When I receive an email with a document attached I am unable to open the latter. When I click on the paperclip symbol at the top of the email a faded list appears but its headings do not respond to any clicking. Any suggestions?

Could be your security setings, look in tools, options, security.

In tools in outlook express go to options then security uncheck the box, 'do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus'

A basic question - Do you have the approriate software to open the file? What is the file extension of the attachment you are trying to open? (e.g, .xls for a excel spreadsheet, .pps for a powerpoint presentation,etc.)
