I recently had an email rejected on the basis that it had an .exe file as an attachment which potentially could have been malicious. It went through OK after being put in a ZIP file.

everything seems ok.
i suppose it could be the blueyonder servers that will not send over a certain size.
it will send emails with no attachments or with small ones, got one back which was 490 KB

trying with a zip file

  binabik 13:37 24 Apr 2004

well, it didn't come back anyway, could well have worked.
thanks for your help mgmcc and AndySD

This happened to me once when the recipients server rejected an exe file; (a security measure probably). Sending it zipped solved the problem.
