If you click Forward, you can open the attachment. Perhaps you aren't
clicking in the right place. I do this all the time and it works fine.

Note that OE questions are best asked in an OE NG -

microsoft.public.inetexplorer.ie4.outlookexpress for OE 4.x for OE 5.x for OE 5.5x for OE 6.x
microsoft.public.internet.mail.mac for the Macintosh version of OE

If those groups aren't carried on the news server that's carrying this group
try using (MS's public news server that's the source
for all the microsoft.public newsgroups).

Also a good source of Outlook Express info can be found here:
