I hope someone will be able to help me here. I had to do a system restore yesterday. Since, I have re-installed Norton Internet Security, upgraded back to Outlook Express 6, etc. I can receive emails, but can't send out anything with an attachment - tried to send to myself, but following message comes up: "This message has been rejected because it has an apparently executable attachment. This is a virus prevention measure." I have already 'unticked' the bit in Options about 'not allowing attachments to be saved or opened', but like I said, the attachment doesn't even get back to me. I would really appreciate you help.
Help!!! Please!!! I really need to figure this out. Am expecting some attachments tomorrow. I just phone Microsoft and they were about as much help as a choc chip cookie. I can't find any helpful info anywhere (I'm not that good when things go wrong). :o(
I've already done that Steve. My ISP is Wanadoo, PJ123. But until yesterday I didn't have any problems with it. The probs started when I finished the system restore. All of a sudden attachments just don't work anymore. It does mention the following 'If you meant to send this file then please package it up as a zip file and resend it' when I try and send one to myself. Why would this have changed to that after restoring? And if that is what I have to do, how do I do it, and will everybody I send attachments to in the future need to download a zip program?
