John Williams At present she has got one of these things you plug into a USB port where you pay for the time you are online in advance. I'm not technically savvy enough to describe it. I didn't even know such a thing existed!
She is awaiting her Welcome Pack from talktalk, the phone is set up but not the broadband
As retep888 says, copy the file(s) to a CD or onto a USB memory stick. I don't know if it would work, but try changing the file extension from /exe to .xxx and then if and when received at the other end, change it back again. Anyone know if that would work ?
Changing the file extension can work (obviously you have to change it back at the receiving end!). However, this will depend on your ISP and what software you have to collect emails.
You can also zip them, and indeed, change the extension and then zip them!
I have successfully used these techniques in the past, but “detection” software is getting “better” (or in my opinion “worse”) in this respect and can tell the file is .exe even if the extension is changed.
I often send .mdb files which are normally stopped, but changing the extension then allows them through. However, I have recently had an email from Virgin that “to improve customer service” they are now looking out for the above tricks. This makes my “customer service” much worse of course!
The simple answer is to try it and see what happens.
