Attachment Blocking

Is there an easy way to administer a fix to the attachment blocking feature in Outlook 2003 amongst all clients on a network?  When attempting to send .exe files, if they aren't blocked first, then they are unable to be opened but rather only saved to disk first.  The registry edit works fine but when you're dealing with 100+ PC's, editing each one is impractical.  I'm hoping there is a way using Exchange to override the blocking of certain file types...?

Greetings, uescjp !

There is no easy way to do fix attachment blocking with Exchange?  You make one registry change. Export the registry key as a .reg file.  Then you can use the .reg file to merge the registry key with the other computers in the network.

Best wishes!

Hi uescjp,

If you are an Exchange administrator, then you can globally control what attachments are/are not allowed.  See this article for details:

war1,

Could you go into greater detail in how to "use the .reg file to merge the registry key with the other computers in the network."  I have edited the registry on 1 computer and been able to receive the attachments so after I go to File>Export and save it as a .reg file, what comes next?

In registry editor, highlight the key that you want to export. Then select File > Export.  The key will be exported as a .reg file.

Now copy the reg file to another computer that is using the same operating system. Double click on the reg file will merge the key into the registry of the computer.
