Check your security settings. They may be set too high. Also check your file attachment settings. make sure you're allowing attachments to be downloaded.

Thanks for the response. The settings are OK as are file attachments. When I save the attachment to file I can open it.

Have read up some more on this and it seems that Windows Live Mail needs to be unistalled then reinstalled with a patch that Microsoft has come up with. But will have to back up all my mail storage before uninstalling. This is a pain as I have a lot of business contacts, orders, etc. stored in my email. So . . . am plodding along saving stuff to file until I get the time to deal with the backup issues.

Thanks for the answer, though. Wish it was that simple!
