For information about how to edit the registry, view the "Changing Keys

edit it. If you are running Windows NT or Windows 2000, you should also
update your Emergency Repair Disk (ERD).

Subject: [exchangelist] Email Security Levels
Now that we have some users on Office2000 using Outlook certain
attachments are being blocked. This also appears to be OS dependent, as
Win9x users can receive attachments, but W2k users can't. I have
searched for info and found a list of what's blocked, but am unable to
find where to change this list in the Exchange server. Any help would be
appreciated. We are running Exchange 5.5 in a NT4 domain. Thanks.
