    Question ActiveX

    When I get an email from Weather Dirct in html it says. Your current security prohibit running ActiveX controls on this page. As a result the page may not display correctly. I use Outlook Express 6. How do I fix this? Thanks Fluff

    If I remember, OE6 uses the restricted zone (IE security zones under internet options) by default, this is not necessarily a bad thing, tends to help prevent some malware (virus, worms, et al), from running...I don't think it would be a good idea to change that setting for all your email in general...

    Does the page actually display? and is ther anything wrong with it?

    Also I would contact the sender about the possibilty of updating or signing their activeX controls...(because in the restricted zone unsigned activeX is not allowed to run...), or to switch over to a plain-text format....
