I don't know how many points this is worth so I will negotiate with whomever can resolve the problem....
After installing Outlook XP I found that Outlook filters out any executable attachments from my incoming mail. I found references to the issue in the help file but it offered no solution to the problem. I understand that the file type in the filter list can be changed by an Exchange Server administrator but that is of no use to me since I only use POP mail and have no access to Exchange. It is causing a real problem because I receive self-installing file updates on a daily basis which are filtered out.
Anyone know how to stop this?
