I run Outlook Express 6 and find I can not open attachments. Operating system XP Home and Office Professional. Any Suggestions?

What happens when you double click on them? Any messages?

Click the message once to select it, and choose to Forward it. The attachment will then be available.

In outlook express 6 try this. Go to Tools, Options, Security and see if the "Do not allow attatchments to be saved or opened........" box is ticked, If it is, untick it.

Open OE6

Tools>Options

Then the security tab

Untick the box that says "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus" then Apply.

Bob's your uncle!

Always make sure you have an up to daye virus scanner though, just in case.

Uncheck the box that says "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus"

I assume you have Antivirus software?
