Outlook Express file attachments

By mattyre ·
Is there a setting on a W2kPro machine using Outlook Express mail program, that lets you block file attachments? Now this refers to a setting that does not include using third party software. How do you set and unset the file attachment filtering inOutlook express?

you can not , outlook 2000 has a security patch for it and can be modified in the reg. Outlook express has no such feature. the only thing you can do it auto delete the common subject emails that appear using the rules wizard.

There are actually 2 things you can do.

1. Under Tools/Option/Security Tab
Check "Secure..." radio button
Check "Do not allow Attachments..." box

2. Under Tools/Message Rules/Mail..
In box 1. check "Where Message the has an attachement"
In box 2. check "Delete it"
In box 3. check "Apply this rule after the message arrives"

That is all I know that you can do. I also would still use auto-email virus scanning.
Good Luck!
