    Outlook Express

    Locked

    by computerusageco ·

    I have a Windows XP Home with Outlook Express as the e-mail. I can not open the attachments on my e-mail. They are grayed out and will not open when I click on them. I have looked for a setting which concerning the OE and attachments but so far have come up empty.

      Have you tried this?

      Tools/Options/Security/clear the checkbox that says “Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus”

      Outlook attachments won’t open

      Error: OE removed access to these unsafe files
      or
      Attachments appear greyed out when you try to select them.

      Newer versions of Outlook Express contain a feature intended to give you the option of selecting NOTto allow attachments to be opened that could potentially be a virus. Here’s how to disable it:

      1. Open Outlook Express and select Tools (top) and then Options.

      2. On the next screen, click the Security Tab and remove the check mark in the box next to “Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus”.

      3. Click Apply and OK.
