Opening attachments from Wanadoo

  Rhuddlan 23:49 09 Jun 2004

I have recived an attachment with an e mail from my ISP Wanadoo, it tells me to right click on the attachment and selct save target as, i do this and choose to save it in my docs and when I go to open it a page cannot be displayed error message appears, i have refreshed the page but nothing happens. I have also tried clicking on the attchment in my inbox but the same page displays, this seems to happen now with every attachment I get, I have tried opening it through ie and msn explorer, but the same thing happens, can't be bothered conatcing Wandoo, as they will reply in about a week like last time, hope someone can help, Rhuddlan.

1) be careful click here

2) Tools/Options, Security tab, Untick "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus"

I cannot see that option to save attachments in the secruity tab, there is no option of this in the advanced tab too, regards, Rhuddlan.

Are you looking at Outlook Express options or Internet Explorer internet options? It's definitely there in OE.

I am looking on the Wanadoo website, my e mail account through that is where the attachment is stored, it is not in outlook express, I don't use that.

There is a strong possibility that this is a virus. If you were not expecting this e-mail, contact the sender, See my post above.

I was expecting this e mail, it is a statement of my account with Wanadoo, so i need to view it, any other ideas? Like I said earlier, when I click on the attachment, another web page opens, with no attachment, the same happens when I try to open it through msn explorer, and yet again the same happens, when I choose to save the target to my docs or the desktop, regards, Rhuddlan.
