Opening email attachments in Outlook Express

pts.

I send a lot of Word Document attachments from my office to home. When I try to open one I get a pop up window that says "Your current security settings do not allow you to open this type of attachment". I have disabled Panda, but I still get the error message. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hello,
Yes, I think I can help you out. Try the following:

Open Outlook Express and goto: Options. From options, click on the “Security” tab. In the security tab you will see Virus Protection, it is the first section on the tab. Check the second option that says “Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially contain a virus.”

I hope this helps!

Thanks,

    Microsoft has blocked attachments that contain executables. There are two ways you can deal with this, one change the extension to something that isn?t executable like .txt or just remove the extension. You have to remember to change it back after you save the attachment. The other way is to do the regedit in the Microsoft knowledge base. http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;829982

    Another option is to send your attachments to home by zipping the file (i.e. .ZIP) extension...Outlook never blocks this extension by default.
