I use Windows XP Pro, can someone advise how i can stop Outlook express from Blocking attachments. Even when i test and send a mail to myself with a photo as an attachment, I get the message that 'OE has blocked an unsafe attachment'.
I have scanned with AVG virus scan and have no virus.
please help.

It's a new security enhancement to Outlook Express.

To turn it off:

1. Click on Tools, Options and click theSecurity tab of the dialog box.

2. Remove the tick from the checkbox labeled "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus".

Click Apply then OK.

Close Outlook Express, open it again and hey presto !

Job done.
