Outlook Express Removes Attachments

  LaneFarmHouse 10:20 20 Sep 2003

I am using OE6 with Windows 98. I am also using Norton 2003. Following a recent "critical updates" update from the MS website I now find that most attachments sent to me are removed automatically by OE 6 with the following comment; "OE has removed access to the following unsafe attachments in your email". These attachments, I know, are OK and it is very frustrating. File extensions with .doc usually get through but everything else is doomed.

Can anybody help please?

In OE, Tools/Options, Security tab, untick the box about blocking attachments.
