HELP! please with e-mail picture attachments!

I have recently re-installed windows 98SE and have downloaded Outlook Express 6. My sister-in-law sent me so pics as an attachment from Oz but they are greyed out and I get the message,
"OE Removed access to the following unsafe attachments in your e-mail".
I tried sending myself a "Safe" picture and got the same message but this time the pic was also shown in the body of the e-mail (not as a saveable attachment though). I am running Norton anti-Virus which is up to date. I didn't have any probs before the re-installation. Can anybody please help me?

In OE, go to Tools > Options > Security tab and untick the box which says "do not allow attachments to be opened or saved...... etc."

You are a total star!!!
