View Full Version : "OE" removes attachments in my email
02-09-2004, 11:09 PM
Often when I receive email in which the sender has added an attachment, rather than the attachment being in the header, I have the message: "OE removed access to the following unsafe attachments in your email:" and then names the attachment.
Is there a way to remove this feature. The attachments are almost always something I have requested.

Well, this is slightly off topic, but does have an easy answer.
Click-Tools-->Options-->Security tab--remove the check mark from the "Do not allow attachments--xxxx" box. OK your way out and you'll be all set.

Thank you guys!
I see what you are talking about, and removed the check mark by the phrase you described.
it is probably an executable file being attached. for example a file with any of the extensions
to attach an executable file to an email, and trick less knowingly people to double click and run the file/the program, is one of the most usual way of spreading viruses.
I think it is a good feature to remove attached executable files!
if you really want someone to send you a program, simply ask them to pack the program with winzip first!
if all the email programs in the world disabled the "feature" to attach executable files, 8 out of 10 viruses would not exist!
just my 2c
