You should have no problems receiving the file, however some ISP such as ?Freeserve? & others automatically filter out and delete file attachments that are executable such as ?exe.' etc. this is done to prevent the spread of potentially harmful viral like files. The way to get around this is to ask your friend to always either 'zip' the file or change the extension of the file.
