1. Open OE
2. Click Tools, point to Options, and then click the Security tab.
3. Uncheck "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus."
4. Click OK

heheh, yes I did, but you had the warning about getting a virus.


Of course, having an updated AV is essential, isn't it? If you have one, your risk is minimised, unless you are one of the unlucky ones that receive a virus before a fix has been created by the AV folks.

This feature just came out, if you have a good AV program you shouldn't have anything to worry about. I have never had a virus and have never used this feature.
