sidecar sid, thanks. So another reason not to have a gmail account then?

Change the file extension to TXT, send it, then back to EXE at the receiving end, would that work?

Should do, is what i have to do when sending .exe's via msn

is always a risky business, and that's why GMail (quite understandably) don't allow it. Changing file extensions to fool their filters is plain silly, and surely no responsible person would do it?

It is a .zip file not an .exe.

Changing the file extension will often make no difference as the filters read the file header and not the extension.

Yes, read it. So what is the point of having an email account if it won't receive emails? except plain text and then asking someone to send them an attachment. So what sort of attachment files does Gmail accept???
