Open OE,then go into tools then options,then down to where it says block attacments etc. Untick it then press apply then ok. That should work then.

Try this:
Start Outlook Express, and then on the Tools menu, click Options.
Click the Security tab, and then UNTICK the Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus check box under Virus Protection.

Allyginger's advice is actually for attachments received and should be unchecked in any case.

Are you sending attachments via OE's Help advice?

"To insert a file into a message

"Click anywhere in the message window.

"On the Insert menu, click File Attachment, and then find the file you want to attach.

"Select the file, and then click Attach.

"The file is listed in the Attach box in the message header."

That's the protection job of AV utilities such as Avast! or AVG AV.
