Attatchments in Hotmail Help Needed Please.

  slimbo51 09:26 03 Jan 2007

Morning all and A Happy New Year.

I need to send an Email attatchment to a Hotmail account. The H/Mail account is refusing to allow it through as it deems it as unsafe.

The owner of the account wants to recieve this file but does not know how to turn off the security filter which is blocking it, and I don't know either.

Can anyone let me know how to advise him, what he needs to do to access the file.

Many thanks for any help.

In the Hotmail Account go to Options (top right of screen) Select Filters/New Filter and Edit the New filter to your requirements.
