Outlook in Office XP

By hpoppe ·
Outlook in Office XP has a (to me) terrible aspect. There is a filter that refuses to let you download e-mail attachments with certain file-extentions, such as .vbs .exe and several others. There are two levels of this function, level one is (according to the "help" files) fixed, and you may not change them. Level two are the ones you can add or remove yourself ( such as .zip). I need to send e-mails with .exe programs attached to them. These mails are sent only to persons wanting to recieve them (often myself as mailing from home to work is safer than floppies). I do not want to hassel with changing extentions (i.e. renaming) these files. Anyone know how to fix the registry (or by other means) diable this filter? (NB! this is OfficeXP, running on Win200 pro, Win200 server and Win98 / Win98se /Win98ME)
If you have a reg. fix for this one, please don't forget to say which OS you are using.
Thanks.

Please don't rate this answer...
For severals days I have crawled across the registry in my w2k machine, deleting and changind registry entries.Zilch.
Microsoft unofficially states that this is hard-coded in one of the .DLL's that load when youstart Outlook. In an Exchange2K server environment, your admin will modify the settings and your DLL wil actually be overwrited.
For now, I'm just using the rename method...
I hope somebody finds the fix..or the full version will leave out this "feature"...
I'm curious to know what AV software vendors have to say about this...

Radu
