When i'm receiving e-mails outlook is taking out
the attachments saying they might not be safe . i knoe they are to to the sender . EG work emailing documents to me , is there anything i can turn off in outlook or do to stop this from happening .

Thanks Ged

yeh open o.e. and click on tools > options > security tab > allow attachments to be saved and opened

I cant see a tick box under the security tab to allow attachments to be saved and opened what i have is 1.Encrypt contents and attachments for outgoing messages.
2. Add additional signiture to out going messages.
3.send clear text signed message
4.request secure receipt for all
this is all under the security tab
thanks ged

It's actually in tools/options/virus protection in winXp, there's a check box to clear to "allow attachments to be opened that potentially could contain a virus" or something like that.

Sorry, that should have read: tools/options/security/virus protection.

What you are looking for is in OE's Tools>Options>Security tab and then the "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially have a virus" line.

It should be permanently disabled as it has very little real value.

for xp there are only four check box's as what i wrote before, sorry to be a pain,
