Outlook Express Not Receiving Attachments From One Sender

I have a PC that is running Outlook Express. It just recently started not recognizing that there is an attachment on an e-mail when one particular sender sends a message. The attachments on the message still get through to whoever is CCed on the message. Also, by the size of the message in Outlook Express, and the source code of the message, I can tell that the message is making it through but not being recognized.
Messages sent from anyone else are still coming through properly, and the sender that is now having problems was not having any problems for months prior.

    There are no blocked senders or mail rules setup in this version of Outlook Express.

  • mbeamer Mar 03, 2009

    OE is currently set to allow all attachments through. The attachments that aren't appearing are just PDFs.



    As I mentioned before the oddest thing is that I can tell that OE received the attachment (based off of message size and its source code), however for some reason OE refuses to acknowledge that there is an attachment when messages are sent by this one particular sender.

  1. Open Outlook Express
  2. Click on Tools->Message Rules->Mail
  3. Check the Mail Rules and Blocked Senders tabs
This is just a preliminary check for anything that may be modified that could be causing your problem. Since the issue is with a specific sender, I would check there first.

    Check your options under the Security tab. There's an option for OE to block attachments which it deems unsafe.

I am able to get the attment from a particular sender


Please explain your question further ...
"I am able to get the attment from a particular ... "
a particular what?

If you are unable to receive a particular attachment from an individual, it depends on the attachment. Microsoft Outlook Express strips attachments of Microsoft Files. That is if someone sends you a MS Excel spread sheet or Word document, Outlook Express will strip the attachment for security. There's no way around this. The fix is have the person send you their file in .ZIP format. Then you can unzip it locally.

There is no setting as such. I suggest she check her anti virus settings and make sure it isn't giving 'false positives'. If it is not anti virus related she should contact her ISP/POP email provider and ask them for assistance.

Outlook express problems


well the problem is complicated just go through the sollution given below
Troubleshooting Outlook Express Error 0x800ccc90
Symptom: There was a problem logging onto your mail server.
  • Your Password was rejected. Account: 'pop.tiscali.co.uk', Server: 'pop.tiscali.co.uk', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR invalid user or password', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 0x800CCC90,
  • Error Number: 0x800CCC92
Solution The first step is to check your Outlook Express settings, making sure that the POP3 and SMTP servers are as in the screenshots, and that your full user name and password are correct.

Then test your connection by following this procedure.
  • Click the Start button then RUN type in cmd on (Windows NT/2000/XP) or Command (Windows 95/98/ME). This will open a new command prompt window, with white text on a black screen.
  • Type in the following exactly as it appears. You will not see what you are entering so take it slowly, and if you make a mistake, start again.
    telnet pop.tiscali.co.uk 110
    and then click the Enter key on your keyboard. You will then be connected to the email server.
  • Type in USER followed by your email address e.g. USER jo_blog@tiscali.co.uk and then click the Enter key. You will then get a message +OK Please enter your pass, with the PASS command
  • Type in PASS followed by your password e.g. PASS joblog0370 and click the Enter key. If it is correct, you will get an OK Well done message.
  • If you can do this, you have connected to the Tiscali server and so the problem lies somewhere with Outlook Express.
If you can't get in this way either, it could be that your password has somehow become corrupted. Try changing it in My Account. Try again.
If this doesn't work, it may be that TCP/IP has somehow become corrupted within Windows. So try reinstalling TCP/IP. To do this
  • Click Start
  • Settings
  • Control Panel
  • Network connections
  • Right click your connection and click Properties
  • Click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and then click Uninstall
Then close down your PC and open it up again.
  • Follow the same steps as above, but instead of clicking Uninstall click Install.
  • On the screen which appears, click Protocol and then Add
  • Click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and then OK (You may be prompted for your Windows installation disk at this point.
If you run Windows XP, the process is slight different. You need to
  • Click Start
  • Run
  • Then type in Command
  • In the screen which appears, type in netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt
If you're still having problems, it could be that Outlook Express is itself corrupt. Microsoft's Instructions on how to delete it and reinstall it, along with making a backup of your address books etc, are located here for Windows 95, 98, and ME and here for Windows 2000.

Winmail to Outlook express 6


Outlook Express does not display any message attachments if TNEF-encoded file (winmail.dat) was received. If you are expecting some attachment, but do not see any, it still can be there.

To decode such a message perform the following steps:
  1. Save the whole e-mail message to an *.EML file via File, Save As, or Drag-and-drop.
  2. Open the *.EML file in a text editor such as Wordpad or Notepad.
  3. Locate the line Content-Type: application/ms-tnef;, and change the Content subtype to something else, such as Content-Type: application/zzz;
  4. Locate the line name="winmail.dat" and change to name="winmail.tnf". You may change the winmail part as well, if desired.
  5. Save the *.EML file from the text editor.
  6. Double click the *.EML file from the Windows File Explorer. This will open the message in a mail window and the TNEF attachment should now be available for saving.
  7. Drag the saved attachment into the Winmail Opener program. Decoded attachments will then be there and can be dragged or opened.
