OE Blocking Attachments in Email

  jockym 12:10 13 Oct 2003

Since upgrading the pc to XP I have had a few head scratching moments but have usually managed to sort it,however this one has me beat.
I am getting the follwing message "OE removed access to the following unsafe attachment in your mail" it then quotes the attachment. These attachments are usually from friends and like a good boy I always send them to my attachment check folder and do a virus scan before I open them. How do I stop OE from doing this, I like control my own destiny,right or wrong.

firstly if you select forward the attachment will appear, secondly go to tools/options/security and untick 'remove attach etc etc' which should solve your probs..

Open OE select tools options then security i think then untick the box that says block accsess to attachments.

In OE go to TOOLS . OPTIONS & untick the box that says "Do not allow attachments to be opened or saved......."

To retrieve existing message attachments simply highlight the attachment go forward and when the e-mail opens right click the attachment and open it from there. You then close the forward e-mail.

thanks for the answer and I admit my guilt - it could only have been me that ticked it in the first place

Its set on by default in OE6 so you didn't set it on- - MS did.
