Probably their ISP considers them to be malicious and blocks them.

Could be either their virus checker is blocking attachments, or the E-Mail software (eg Outlook Express) is set to not allow attachments or images to be viewed or downloaded. (OE mail settings can be reconfigured through the tools/options tab).

Try disabling "Don not allow attachments to be saved or opened..." from Tools>Options>Security tab.

It's of little value in any case.

Also make sure that the Preview Pane is PERMANENTLY disabled - it's a key factor in viruses etc being set free, even with just one click.

You can still read messages by double clicking on the line and/or view suspicious messages by right clicking on the e-mail line and then the Message button.

If anything seems untoward, keep Cancelling and then Delete the message by using the Toolbar's Delete button.
