attachments being stripped

It seems that outlook sometimes strips attachments from emails.  I have a ton of security on the gateway so Outlook having any type of security enabled is pointless and/or overkill.  Where can I disable this?

It would be rather bold to disable it. What files are being stripped that you want to allow?  Refer to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/829982 on how to enable a particular attachment.

The files that are being stripped are Word files and PDF files and it only occurs from one sender.

Actually, Outlook natively "blocks" attachments, not "strips" them, and .doc and .pdfs aren't blocked natively by Outlook.  Is something else, perhaps on the gateway, stripping them?  You can try the reg hacl:  HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook\Security\Level1Remove and add .doc;.pdf

But if the attachments are being stripped out before Outlook, then this won't help.
