I've recently installed MS Office XP onto my WinXP PC and am using Outlook as my preferred mail client.
I imported all of my old mail from Outlook Express into Outlook, and found the email a friend had sent me with a .exe file attached (it was a game patch) as I needed to patch the game I had just reinstalled. However, when I opened the email, it said that the attachment had been removed.
I did a search of the Outlook help database, which informed me that there were 2 levels of security when it came to blocking attached files, Level 1 of which could not be altered unless it was by an Administrator on a Network. Unfortunately for me, .exe files are classed as Level 1 attachments.
My question therefore is, is there anyway I can alter this Level 1 list to allow .exe files through - maybe through the Registry or 3rd party tool.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
