[mso] Re: exe files

 Neil
Thanks
I used one of the addin programs and now I am in control. 
Dian had I known there was that limitation I would have done something like
you suggested. It still doesn't make Microsoft right in my eyes. They should
be blocking up other "holes" rather than restricting users.

Well Errol, this is not exactly a new issue with Outlook, but are a number
of ways around it.
This page details them all:
http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/esecup/getexe.htm

It's really very simple to work around this.

FWIW, remember the day when OL and OE let all attachments through? For
Outlook that was pre OL2000 SP2.
People screamed blue murder that MS should do something to stop idiots
opening virus-laden emails, and that OL was an admin nightmare (and
remember, OL is primarily a business tool rather than for home users)!
Well, MS did do something about it, and now people (probably different
people) scream about how MS treats them as dummies...
You can't please all of the people all of the time...

Regards
