Outlook Express removed access to the following unsafe attachments in your mail

By default Outlook Express doesn't allow users to open attachments that could be a virus. This is a poor substitute for a real virus checker and often causes hassle when you are trying to access a legitimate attachment.

To disable this warning follow the instructions below.

WARNING: We recommend that you have an up-to-date virus checker installed before opening any email attachments from anyone.

1. Start Outlook Express

2. Select Tools > Options in the menu

3. Go to the tab that says Security
Look for the tick box that says "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus." and remove the tick from it.

4. Press [OK]
You should now be able to view, open and save all attachments
