- Oct 22, 2003Hi Judith
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
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.
