I have been getting E-mail from My Big Bro, and when i open it. it says outlook express has removed the atachment. possible virus.
My question is this. how can I turn the security down on outlook so i can see what this would be, and my norton would possibly pick it up anyway. Now this only happens every so often. I would think that if my Bro had a virus on his pc, it would remove all the others that he sends me. I am always up to date on the anti-virus..Thus, this bothers me. any idea's..Thanks

try this:

In OE
Click tools/options
Click on the security tab
Uncheck "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could
potentially be a virus"
Click apply
Click OK

Have you confirmed that your brother is intentionally sending you something and that it is not a virus on his machine replicating and spreading via email?

RE: outlook express

Yes on that issue. He has almost every virus in the book. I talk to him and he's gonna reformat and get the anti-virus that he should have. He needs to update. but he's bullheaded you know. My anti-virus caught it. thanks for the info. and a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year to you and all.

I would never recommend disabling the security settings in OE. If your brother or anyone for that matter wants to send you a file I would recommend them zipping it up. That way OE wont block it and you still will have your security, not that OE's security is something to brag about. :happy:

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
