I am running XP pro and Outlook 2000. Outlook wont allow me to receive certain file types such as .inf and .exe files. How do I remove this feature?

.exe.files are executionable (program) files and any good software will block this. If you know the sender get him/her to re-send it as a ZIP file and this will be accessable to you. If you don't know the user, then don't EVER try to open an .exe or .inf file!

Select the email and choose 'Forward'. The attachment will then be accessible.
