It sounds to me as if your antivirus program is blocking them If you are totally confident the emails are from a safe source try disabling your av temporarily and try again.

have turned off AV,attachments still blocked.

Does dropdown list allow save. If so save to desktop and then if this works open from there.

You can run anti virus on the saved file if you choose to.
