Outlook express attachments

Unable to receive attachments sent to my windows XP home computor using my Outlook Express.

I do not know what program they use but if they send me a list for example list.zip my outlook express comes up with a message,unsafe attachment & I cannot read it.

But if they resend using a txt file attachment I can read it. Why?

Have a read of This thread, it may help.

Same applies to Outlook XP.
This problem has been addressed before, perhaps you can search for it in this forum. Best use ‘Outlook AND attachment*’

Thanks guys it worked.
