Thanks for your interest.
The message i get when trying to open the email is
"You current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded"
I should add that i can open the email when using Outlook Express but not with Windows Live Mail.
Regards

I found that if you go to your server it is possible to read the message there.

To check to see if attachments are allowed to open:

Open WLM.

On the upper left-hand corner, is a blue icon. Click the drop down arrow in that icon, mouse over Options, then click on Safety Options.

Security tab.

Under Virus Protection are attachment options. Uncheck Do not allow attachments to be saved or opend that could potentially be a virus.

Click Apply, then OK to close out Safety Options.

Thank you for your interest
I would point out that it is not possible to open an EML file except at the server and there is no blue icon to be seen.
regards

Having researched this problem a Little it appears that it not possible to open an email with an EML extension using Windows Live Mail you have to use Outlook or Outlook Express.
I quite like Windows Live Mail so i will go to my server if i want to read,

I had read that and tried most of them but did not solve the problem.
The easiest way for me is to read the message/file at the server
Thanks for your trouble.
Regards
