Outlook removes attachments

When I receive an e-mail with an attachment with an EXE extension, Outlook removes the extension.  I have been unable to find a solution in the "Help" files. I have more than adequate anti-virus protection.  How can I stop this from happening?
Thanks!

Hi cwhatley,

EXE files are not meant to be send over the e-mail.  If you really want to do so you can zip it up and send that will by pass outlook check.  I remember exe file was removed after service pack 2 or 3 has been deployed.  I would suggest using an FTP althenative ior web post pages for exe files.  email can send and exacute the exacutable file without your acknowledge.
