Thank you for the reply.
Actually, I did mean Outlook :) . I used Outlook in order to
verify that indeed I had a problem with Outlook Express. As for
antivirus and firewall, I use nod32 and Zone Alarm and they are
both set to check my emails. This has been the case even before
installing Windows SP2. Disabling both those programs still
doesn't enable me to view attachments (other than jpg or gif
files) or to save *any* type of attachment.
My guess is that something must have gone wrong during the
Windows SP2 installation, although I didn't actually notice
anything odd at the time.
