Outlook 2000 SR-1 Attachment Blocking

By ndhiman ·
I use exchange 5.5 with Office 2000. Ever since I upgraded to Office 2000 SR-1, Outllok blocks all my attachments..even url's. I looked at microsoft site and they have a fix for this by creating an Outllok form and few other steps. I tried it and itworked on Win 2k but not on NT4..
Any suggestions !!!!

Outlook 2000 SR-1 Attachment Blocking

HI

By default SR1 and above will block all the executable attachment like .com, .bat,.exe.
You need zip it and change to another extension if you want to send or if you have outlook 2000 go tool and option and security and change the setting there.

If you apply Office 2000 SP3 this will fix the problem

Basically now when you receive an attachment you will be warned but prompted to save the file and subsequently open it

Another alternative is to open the email message with the 'blocked' message in Outlook Express where you can open it straight from the email itself as the blocked file is not actually deleted but just hidden from view in Outlook

Hope this helps
