77. Disable Attachment Virus Protection In
You may have noticed that when you receive an
attachment with an email you are unable to open the
attachment or save the attachment to your hard
drive. The reason for this is that Windows Mail has
the 'Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened
that could potentially be a virus option enabled.'
Obviously, this is a safeguard against malicious
attachments. However, if you receive attachments
from friends you need to be able to open them. Here
is how you disable the attachment virus protection
1/ In Windows Mail click
Tools on the main toolbar.
2/ From the drop down menu
3/ In the options window select
the Security tab.
4/ At the top you will see a section marked
5/ The very last option is Do not allow
attachments to be saved or opened that could
potentially be a virus.
6/ Remove the check mark from
this option to disable it.
7/ Click the Apply button.
8/ Finally click OK to exit.
