how do i allow these "unsafe" attachments to come through? currently i'm losing stuff because of Outlook Express' behaviour

Open OE click Tools, Options, Security and untick the box that says (Do not allow attatchments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus )

As Philwane makes clear OE is not removing the attachments, only adhering to the policy of not opening them unless overruled which was enabled with your SP2 installation.

The feature is actually a nuisance and should be disabled - more important is to permanently disable the Preview Pane in OE, a major source of allowing nasties to have their evil way.
