Outlook Express prevents me from opening email with attachments. How do I fix this?

Outlook Express does not allow all attachments to be saved or opened because it deems them a risk to security. In order to turn this feature off you should:

  1. Click the "Tools" menu
  2. Select Options and then Security
  3. Uncheck the box next to:
    "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus."
  4. Click OK
