Unable to access zip attachments in OE

I'm unable to access zip file attachments in messages received in Outlook Express. Whenever I try I get a message that says "OE has blocked access to unsafe attachment xxx.zip". I have Winzip installed on my pc.

I am using OE 6 with Windows XP Home.

Any advice gratefully accepted.

In OE go to tools/Optios/Security and uncheck the box 'Do not allow attachments to be opened ...'

Obviously you should not open any attachment you are unsure of!

In an earlier posting today I reported that I have suddenly had all my email attachments blocked with the same OE message. Some are emails days old which I have opened several times. Why has this suddenly happened? I am loathe to follow acfc's advice and uncheck the box he suggests. My prob has occurred without any fiddling with any OE settings.
