Can anyone help, I have a friend who as asks me if I know a solution!!

they say that when they open there e-mail and it as attachments they want to download it comes up with a message saying at the top 'OE removed access to the following unsafe attachments in your mail : ..........

Sorry they did not say what O/S they were using, but would this have anything to do with internet settings???

Can anyone help

In OE, Tools/Options, Security tab. Take the tick out of block attachments.

thanks VoG for the quick response I will have to e-mail them to tell them what to do....

Thanks again I will get back to you as and when they sort it out at there end, and if all sorted will pass this up as being resolved!!

VoG had a look through my OE, went the route you said but could not find anything in there about unblocking attachments??

Do as VOG says under SECURITY. Virus Protection Untick the box thaat says something like. "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened etc that may possible carry a virus" (my words )

This is for OE 6

Hope this helps
