    Anybody ever have a problem with opening their mail? Whenever i click on the link i get a message that say's window's can't open this file. I have no clue why it has started doing this but it's pissing me off. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I've noticed a problem recently - the little paper clip showing an attachment is somehow disabled - when I click on it the little drop-down menu is greyed out.

    I'm posting this here, because anyone who knows Rick's problem might also know this one.

    Hope you don't mind this Rick, and it'll bump the message up a bit.

    BTW, I hate all those settings that we don't even know are set,or how they got changed. [​IMG]

    Rick, how are you accessing your email? You said you're clicking on a link -- is this webmail?

    John, what email client and version are you using? Some versions of Outhouse and Outhouse Express have a default "security" setting that pretty much denies all access to attachments.

    Dave, its Windows 98 with Outlook Express 6, (just upgraded from some Version 5 about 3 months ago) if that helps, and its only recently that the great number of inaccessible attachments has appeared.

    Norton AV occasionally stops e-mail, but I haven't noticed any of that for a few months either?
