Outlook Express – unable to open e-mail attachments

October 2016


If you are receiving e-mails with attachment files and you are unable to open or save them, this is because your antivirus is blocking access to open. It is because these attachment files are unsafe!


To open these attachments, just follow these instructions:
  • Open Outlook Express
  • Click on “Tools“
  • Click on “Options”
  • Click on the “Security” tab!
  • Uncheck “Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus”
  • Click OK

As from now you will be able to open your attachments!
