Question: Outlook Attachments in Outlook Express 6 will not open. Why not and how can I fix this?

Computer Help's picture

Having problems with file attachments not seeming to open in Outlook Express 6 for some reason? There is a pretty simple way to fix this if this is happening to you.

Open up your Outlook Express 6, then choose on Tools, then choose Options, then the Security tab, and select INTERNET ZONE. After you have done that, make sure that the option "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus" is UNCHECKED. Then click APPLY and then click OK.

Now go ahead and close your Outlook Express 6 program. Load it back up and try to open the attachment again. Everything should now be opening and good to go!
