What allows you to click on a link in OE to go to that website? Can't remember, and yes, I'm older than most. :thumbsup:

Just had to reformat a friend's computer and their OE won't do that. Is it in IE Internet Options/Connections?

I really never changed any settings while reinstalling XP, so can't imagine what screwed it up. But, this will fix OE?

Will be going over on Sunday to see if anything works to fix it.

What I suggested is a standard way to resolve the issue.
Try it and let me know if it works.

I forgot to mention that this will reset the homepage to msn, but it can easily be changed back to whatever is preferred.

It did fix it, but had to change the home-page back. Thanks Queen!

The thing that bugs me though, when I reformat mine all the time, it never does this and can't understand why it changed theirs. Might be because they have a restore disk instead of just installing WinXP direct.

That might have something to do with it, but a lot of people DON'T reinstall Windows and the issue just occurs out of the blue.
It happened to me a couple of times, and the solution I gave you has always worked.
Glad it worked for your friend.

My brother had a wierd problem today that I can't find how to fix it. It was working the last time I was up there, but it's not now. Here's the problem:

Seems that the little box that you can click on to get to the attachment is no longer on the line just above the body of the message and it also doesn't allow you to click on that same line to get pictures to show up within the message as well.

Not sure I explained that well, but hope it came through. Checked the security tab and everything is as it was before.

Not sure if his wife did something to it or not.

Will the above fix fix this as well?

When you click the paper clip in the Preview pane, the Save Attachments and file_name commands are unavailable.


Problem is, there is no paper clip on the preview pane or the area where you can click on to get pictures. Now what?

And all the right places are checked within the Security Tab. Have got it just like that on mine and it all works.

Doing the thing in IE7 will fix OE?

Sorry. I should have been more specific. The System File Checker under method 3 replaces any files that are missing or corrupt on the computer. More information here >> How to Use SFC.EXE to Repair System Files .

You can also check in OE under View > Columns & see if there's a checkmark next to Attachment. If it happens to be missing, click the box to put in a checkmark & select Reset.

FYI: IE 7 is separate from Outlook Express & is not bundled together when you download & install IE7. Read this related article: Email Problems & OE (Ask Leo!)
