Cannot open attachments

  Glen 19:43 17 Mar 2003

I need help with my Email attachments. I can only open JPG and Word attachments. Those in PDF, Txt, Dat, EXE and Works (.wps) will not open. If I click File/Open the email message comes up with the following banner note across the top - "OE removed access to the following unsafe attachments in your mail, (title) .pdf or (title) .txt
I have deleted all message rules except one which directs all items designated by SPAMPAL to a new folder called SPAMPAL. I have also disabled Spampal. I still can not open those attachments. I have OE 6. What can I do now? Also why are JPG attachments treated difereently, and always appear below the message?

To get sort it :

Tool, Options, Security, take the tick out of the box that starts "Do Not Allow Attachment..."

Tools/Options/Security tab, take the tick out of "Remove potentially unsafe..." or similar.

Make sure you have up to date anti virus.
