    hi a friend emails me with an word doc attachment using incredimail. windows
    mail then says "windows mail removed access to the following unsafe
    attachment in your mail ........" I know the attachment is clean.
    what is causing this to happen to him

  2. Go to "tools" then "options" and then to the "security" tab.
    Uncheck the box in front of "Do not allow attachments to be opened or saved
    that - - - "

    Hi richard I can recieve the email and know how i can make windows mail
    accept the attachment. The problem is, what is my friend doing wrong at his
    end? Every one he sends attachments too are rejecting his attachments, they
    are important for his business. So we need to know what he can change to fix

  4. Have your friend attach PDFs instead of the potientially unsafe Word
    documents. Many of his e-mail recipeints may not have Word, but they all
    have either Adobe Reader or Foxit Reader.

  5. The problem with sending out Word documents is that many casual
    computer users don't have Word installed.
    Your friend could make it inline HTML (in he body of the email),
    instead of making it an attachment.
