OE removed access to a unsafe attachment: This is due to Outlook Express thinking that the attachment may contain a virus. If you want to view the attachment: Go to Tools -> Options then click on the Security tab and
uncheck where it says "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that
could potentially be virus". (Only Outlook Express 6 +)


Here you can see who the message is from, the date it was sent, who it is to, (stupid, you know its to you) and the subject.
