I have Windows XP Prof with SP2 and use Outlook express 6 - However sometimes when people send attachments I cannot see them with the email even though the email size is showing a file larger than just text- I am assuming the attachment is there but I do not know how to access it.

How do I fix it so I can see and open the attachments?

On my security tab I already have the do not allow attachments unchecked and have for some time.

Well I think I have narrowed down the problem- It is telling me that my mail reader cannot read MIME format- So how do I fix this?

Offhand I want to say it's Tools - Options - Mail tab.. you can change your version.. maybe HTTP instead of plain text or rich text.
