      Hi Judith

      Great advice!

      Being the computer dummy I am, when I received an email stating that OE had
      removed the attachment, I clicked on the "Forward" button on this particular
      email and then the attachment would appear and then I could open it. This
      worked 100%.

      For some reason, I received some attachments with OE and OE removed others.
      I have no means of understanding this random removal or acceptance but If I
      follow your advice perhaps that might lead to the answer.
