None of my attachments will open anymore

None of my email attachments will open anymore.  The paper clip shows up as a ghost.  I don’t understand the solution descriptions I’ve read.  

When you open the email, is the attachment not shown below the header?

Yep!  absolutely right.  I don’t know what I was thinking, but I just zoned out.  Getting older I guess, Gary.  Thank you for straightening me out.~Deb
