    Outlook XP Security (Office XP)

    I think WOW warned me, but I didn't pay attention; now I would like suggestions on how to solve the latest Microsoft "feature."

    Using Outlook XP I have found, to some shock, that Outlook will apparently remove attachments from email messages, leaving no message that an attachment has been removed. This is apparently a security "feature". (They provide a message saying that excess line breaks have been removed so that an incoming message lacks the original appearance, but the removal of attachments is without warning or alert.) (This seems like horrible design.)

    It's hard to believe that Microsoft left no work-around for cases when I know the sender and am waiting for an attachment -- but I can't find a work-around. Isn't there some way (other than going to some other mail app) of telling Outlook to process and go ahead with the attachment?

    I would certainly appreciate any suggestions.

    it doesn't remove the attachment, just blocks access to it.
