Sorry to hiijack your thread Fr0z3n.
Which option do you suggest VoG? Do you have one of them in use?

Cheers in advance, T:-)

I confess, I haven't tried any of them. I would rather be safe than sorry.

When this issue arises for me it is usually when I want to transfer a "suspect" file type from home to work or vice versa. I just use a floppy.

The site that I posted is a reputable one and any of the solutions should work. However, only to be done if you are fully virus-protected (which I'm sure you are).

If you really only want to bypass the security settings for a single attachment that you know to be safe, simply highlight the message in your Inbox, and choose to Forward it.

The attachment can now be opened, saved, etc.

Close Outlook and click on Start>Run,type Regedit,OK.
Browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Outlook\Security. In the right pane, right-click and choose New>String Value. Give this value the name Level1Remove, then press Enter. Right-click on the newly created string value and choose Modify.
Now enter the three letter file extensions of those type you wish to allow, in your case .exe
Caution though. Don't forget the reason the restriction was there in the first place.

Tools, Options, Security, then change "Restricted Sites" to "Internet" and I think you'll find that more attachments will be available.
