go to tools/options/security and untick the do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could be a virus.

I have XP home. certainlt this applies to this operating system. Open outlook Express. Click TOOLS/OPTIONS/SECURITY. Then ensure that the box which says do not allow attachments which may contain a virus is NOT TICKED.

Try saving the file say to your desktop, then open acrobat reader and click file, open then go to your file that you have saved and see if it will open that way.

Also remember, there is a way to unblock the blocked level one files on Outlook as well.
