Oftentimes, Outlook 2002 is not in control of attachments. If you are behind an Exchange Server... it may be a server policy that is blocking your attachments. If that is the case, your alternatives are:

1) have the user mail the attachment with a extension that will pass through exchange (filename.zzz instead of filename.zip or whatever is not blocked by your exchange server), but you need to talk with your administrator and see which extensions are allowed through.

2) zip up the files and send in that manner.

You have to edit the registry. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Outlook\Security
If the following settings do not exist, create them:
"Level"=dword:00000003
"UseCRLChasing"=dword:00000001
"Level1Remove"=".lnk;mdb"

Under "Level1Remove", add the extensions for the file types you would like to be able to open.
