Outlook Express Attachments Missing
Microsoft Outlook Express is set-up by default to block some attachments. For example, '.exe' files and other executable are considered unsafe. If you enable this feature, you may face attachments missing problem in Outlook Express. In some cases, an Internet service provider or e-mail provider will scan incoming e-mails and automatically delete the attachment either because it is considered unsafe or because it exceeds the allocated space given to the user's e-mail account.
There are potential risks of accepting executable files and you must disable this feature. For this, you need to open Outlook Express and select 'Tools'. From the 'Tools' menu, you need to select 'Options'. From the given window, you need to select 'Security' tab. Within the Security Windows under Virus Protection, uncheck 'Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus' option and press 'Ok' button.
If you detect that service provider or the e-mail provider is scanning received e-mails and routinely deletes attachments, then you need to contact either your Internet service provider or e-mail provider. An alternative solution is that if you are unable to get a hold of your ISP or e-mail provider, you can set-up a free webmail account and try receiving the attachment through the webmail address.
