You can edit what is classed as level 1 attachments via local
registry tweaks or at the exchange server if you have one...
This "feature" originally surfaced as part of the email security
patch which I foolishly installed on Office2000 about 6 months ago. I
re-installed office a day later just to fix the irritation this
I have a friend who is sending me attachments that are executable.
Seems M$ decided to make it their business which types of extensions
receive (hmmmm Eudora looking good all of a sudden). This is what I
from m$ help " By default, Microsoft Outlook blocks attachment files
such as .bat, .exe, .vbs, and .js) that can contain viruses. You
see or access the attachments. Your Inbox will display the paperclip
icon in the Attachment column to let you know that the message has an
attachment, and you will see a list of the blocked attachment files
the InfoBar at the top of your message. If you try to open the
attachment by right-clicking the item, View Attachments will not
on the shortcut menu. If you need to use files, such as .exe files,
others, have them post the files to a network share or to a Web share
that you can access."
Also " There are two levels of attachment security. Access to level 1
files is blocked and can't be changed."
Now lets say I need that file and I don't have access to the same
network or web share? Is there away around this? Maybe like
filename.exe.blah or would that corrupt the attachment when I rename
back to .exe later?
The funniest part (for all your m$ bashers out there) is the file I
trying to get was none other then M$ urlscan (something they should
released with IIS, instead of all those buffer overflows... Oh wait
M$.) Sorry for the M$ bashing but I find this nonsense. I enjoy
outlook but I don't enjoy people shoving there ideas down my throat.
Public or private welcome. Flames welcome but don't send them as
executable cause apparently I can't get them :)
