Outlook Express Version & M/S Pub 98 Attachments.

  Carronade 14:02 26 Jan 2003

I exchange occasional Publisher 98 files with a colleague. I opened one he sent to me recently, to get the message "OE removed access to the following unsafe attachment in your mail - (there follows the file name)". Clicking on the paper clip shows the attachment there but greyed out, as is the 'save' option.
Opening 'properties/message source' shows the file there, in detail and in some sort of code. 'Help' is no help.

I sent a reply with a short Pub. attachment, which I cannot open in my own computer.

I run AVG and (free) Zone Alarm and accept Microsoft Windows updates. OE is version 6.

I'll be grateful for any advice.

In OE Tools/Options, Security tab, untick "Do not allow attachments to be saved..."

Many thanks, VoG. It worked first time. I'll know what to do in future.
