Running Outlook 2002, i am unable to open url attachments, "Outlook has blocked access etc..."

I have tried editing the registry and downloading a tool called Attachment Options from http://www.slovaktech.com/attachmentoptions.htm

I can select that i do not want to block url files, i presume this program just edits the registry.

When i restart outlook however they all appear to be blocked again. I am a local admin on this machine.

Thanks

Is this the route you took?

Click Start->Run->Regedit

Run Regedit, and go to this key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Outlook\Security (change 10.0 to 9.0 for Outlook 2000 SP3 or to 11.0 for Outlook 2003)
Under that key, add a new string value named Level1Remove.
For the value for Level1Remove, enter a semicolon-delimited list of file extensions. For example, entering this:

.zip;.mdb;.url

would force you to save Zip file type and unblock Microsoft Access files and Internet shortcuts.

Hi Richard, also, just try lowering your internet explorer security options. That sometimes does the trick

Hi richardwakefield,

You also might want to take a look at the COM add-in listed here to add a menu to your options menu:
