or only to some. I don't know about XP, but the first thing I would check would be your security settings. Especially EXE files may be blocked from being opened to prevent risk of virus infection.

In OE go to Tools > Options > Security tab and untick the "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus". That should cure it for you, plasticpig.
