If you are sure that the Email attachment is from a reliable source and then content is potentially safe you can try to download the images to your computer and save it in a folder.

After you have saved the pictures, open the folder containing those picture files and try to open it with Internet explorer.

If it is not ready to open with Internet explorer then you should not try to open it with any other program. There are chances that either the file is corrupted or it contains a Virus or other harmful stuffs.

Attachments to E-mail won't come up


Turn Off Attachment Blocking in Outlook Express 6.1 SP1 Introduction Many viruses are transmitted through files attached to e-mail messages. For this reason, blocking of attachments is now a standard feature of many e-mail programs, including Outlook Express 6.1 SP1. Attachment blocking has been available in Outlook Express for some time, but it is now turned on by default.
When using Outlook Express to read your e-mail, you may notice a yellow message stating: “OE removed access to the following unsafe attachments in your mail: filename(s).” Please note that the attachment is still included in the message, you simply cannot access it because of a security restriction that can be turned off. These instructions explain how to turn off this restriction.
Procedure
  1. In Outlook Express, select the Tools menu, and click Options.
  2. Select the Security tab, clear the Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus check box, and click OK.

  3. You should now have access to all attachments in your e-mail messages. Remember, you should never open an attachment unless you are certain it does not contain a virus. It is recommended that you save the file first, and then open it from the saved location.

I keep getting amessage "OE removed access to the following attachments in your mail". How can I fix this wo my attachments go through? Thank You


f you cannot open attachments while using the Outlook Express e-mail client, your security settings may be too high. When you try to open attachments, you may see the following message: “OE removed access to the following unsafe attachments in your mail.”

To check your e-mail security settings:

1. Open Outlook Express.
2. Click on Tools in the menu, and scroll down to Options.
3. Click on the Security tab.
4. Make sure “Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus” is UNCHECKED.
5. Click on the Apply button. Click on OK.

You should now be able to open attachments.

Note: If you are using Outlook 2003 to read your mail, you may not be able to open attachments with extensions (.exe, .vbs , etc.) that the program considers unsafe. To get around this problem, ask the attachment’s sender to use a compression program, such as WinZip, that alters the file’s extension to something considered safer (.zip). More information about this feature can be found at: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;829982 .
Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.
