Hi, Abraham ~
<hr> if I keep my virus defs religiously up-to-date, which I do, and use a firewall, which I do, that nothing could be launched from viewing in the preview pane. Am I wrong about this?<hr></small> A common assumption, Abraham, but not correct. Please see any one of these links for further explanation.
<hr>I do have OE 6.0 SP1 installed, but OE still can't remember where I want my attachments to be stored.<hr></small>Yes, but did you read through the MSKB link I provided? You need to have the Q331923 cumulative patch that brings you up to version 6.00.2600.1123 for OE6 SP1. You will then be able to remember the default save location by right-clicking the attachment as I have outlined above.
