New with Outlook 202 - Problems
I have used the Outlook Express for several years now, with little or no operating problems.

I recently upgraded my hardware and I am now using Microsoft XP - Home Edition with Microsoft Outlook 2002. I have tewo specific problems and I need some direction:

1. When you turn on Outlook Express, it automatically downloads your e-mail messages. Outlook doesn't. Is there some way to activate the program?

2. When I receive e-mails with attachments, I have to either go to the web or use a software program on the computer. In Outlook Express, it opened automatically. What have I done wrong?

2. Attachments in any properly updated version of Outlook or Outlook Express are treated with much suspicion these days. Executable programs, if not stripped outright, will have to be saved to disk and cannot be opened by Outlook without overriding most of the security features (and you don't want to do that).

If your problem is with image attachments, check your file type assignments.

1. Go to Tools, Options, Mail Setup, select "Send immediately when connected".
