Hello and thanks in advance,

I can't view my attachments in oe6 (win2k), and when I go to tools/options/security, the "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus"-box is grayed out.

I have 3 identities in oe6 and all are grayed out. I have tried switching all 3 to restricted sites zone, and then restarting and all are still grayed out.

thanks for your help,

Brad

Hi wo1fguy

I found this in the Microsoft Outlook Express Newsgroups.

Requires a registry edit, be sure to backup your registry first, here is a link for
Backing up the Windows registry

Open Regedit
Navigate to this key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Outlook Express
BlockExeAttachments=dword:00000000

Change the value of BlockExeAttachments to 0 or delete the value.

Let us know if this works or not.

Thanks for the suggestion, Eafiedler, but unfortunately it didn't work. I deleted the value and then sent myself an attachment from my yahoo account, but OE still removed it. Sorry it took me so long to reply but have had some long days at work.

Any other advice would be appreciated!

Brad
