Chris,

I don't use Outlook Express so I'm not really certain.  However, have you
tried setting your outgoing mail format in Outlook Express to be plain text.
Have you also  checked that your  mail editor isn't MS Word?  Just a thought
...

Subject: [BCAB] A strange error message when pasting text from Word into
anemail

Hi all,

I wonder if someone could help me please. I'm running Windows XP, JAWS9,
IE7, Office 2003 and am using Outlook Express as my email client.

Whenever I select some text either from a web page or from another Word
document and use controlV to paste it into the body of an email, I get the
following error message.
"One or more active exe controls could not be displayed because either:
1. Your current security settings prohibit running active exe controls from
this page, or 2. You have blocked the publisher of one of the controls.
As a result,the page may not display correctly".

I've just had my machine rebuilt after a major crash and have never had this
message before. I installed IE7 with the standard configuration and haven't
changed any of the security settings. I'm puzzled though as to why active
exe controls should be involved when pasting text from Word into Outlook
Express.

In spite of the error message, the text usually, but not always appears in
the body of the email.

Any help as to what I could try would be very welcome, as the error message
is very frustrating.

Many thanks in advance for any help.

Best Wishes

Chris.
