OE has block/restricted access to an attachment

I have just an important e-mail with an attachment, now my Outlook Express says that I can't download it due to it being un safe which I doubt it is.

Is there anyway of getting access to the file?

To turn off this feature in Outlook Express, select Options from the Tools menu, click on the Security tab, and uncheck the box that says Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus. Once you click on OK, you should also be able to open attachments that arrived while this feature was on.

Solution was in Tools - Options - and a tick box with download atachments or similar -
and that was problem solved -

Thanks, that was pretty simple, considering I looked at that Tab, it must be to early and to many late nights LOL

Thanks again
