    I am having trouble opening CDR files through Outlook Express. The files are sitting there but the lettering is light gray and the file is totally inactive. I sent a Coreldraw file to a printer and he was able to open it but in the "sent folder" it was there but inactive. The problem seems to have arisen since I went on to Windows XP. Does anyone else experience this. The CDR file were below my version so that was not an issue.:help:

    Maybe a security issue, try lowering your settings

    Your first major problem....

    is using Outlook!
    Please switch to Mozilla Thunderbird and Firefox for your browser.

    Dave,
    Check to see what the internal security settings are in OE, AND what they may be in your avti-virus, if you are running any.

    Yeah, I had to mess with my security settings to get ALL file formats to come through properly. Can't remember which buttons I pushed, but just start fiddling with your security (wisely of course) and see what happens...

    I'm an application developer and we make it a practice to add ".safe" to the end of any files we send. A lot of corporate firewall will block certain attachments. All the end user needs to do is copy the file to there desktop and remove the ".safe" from the filename.
