  • Hi Patty,

    First, I would like to verify the following:

    1. Are you able to download other files from internet?

    2. Are you able to open or save the attachments from other email accounts?

    3. Have you made any changes to the computer prior to the issue?


    Also, try the following:

    1. You can run Internet Explorer (No Add-ons) to troubleshoot the issue.


        1. Open Start Menu, then click all programs, select Accessories, open the  system tools;

        2. Right-click Internet Explorer(No Add-ons), run as Administrator.

    2. Reset Internet Explorer settings and see how it works.

    Hope this helps.
