Have a look at this:
OLEXP: Using Virus Protection Features in Outlook Express 6
For the benefit of those with OL2K/XP also be aware of:
OL2000: Information About the Outlook E-mail Security Update
OL2002: You Cannot Open Attachments
Summa summarum: MS wants you protected against 'dangerous' document types by default :) But some of this protection you can disable...

I changed the Out Look 6 setting to "Internet". I also turned off Zone Alarm's e-mail protection. No luck. Out Look still won't open the attachments. Eudora will, but I like the interface of Out Look and would rather use it.
Any more ideas?

I think the section headed "Using the Internet Explorer Unsafe File List to Filter E-mail Attachments" might be of most interest, but see what you think

Start Outlook Express, and then on the Tools menu, click Options.
Click the Security tab, and then click either Restricted Sites Zone or Internet Zone (less secure, but more functional) in the Virus Protection section under Select the Internet Explorer security zone to use.
Click OK to close the Options dialog box, and then quit Outlook Express.
Start Internet Explorer, click Internet Options on the Tools menu, and then click Security.
Click Custom Level for the security zone that you selected in Outlook Express. The security settings that you choose apply to Outlook Express as well as Internet Explorer
