From what I understand, this was Microsoft's security patch/ Service
Pack for Office 2000 & XP.  Everything I've seen so far states that this
is a "Feature, not a bug."

But I haven't really investigated much, because most of my users
wouldn't know how to attach a file to an e-mail message anyway.
("That's what they make floppy drives and FedEx for, isn't it?")

Good luck.

 I have Exch 5.5 sp3 (on NT4) for mail server and installed outlook 2000
on clients desktop.But one client install windows xp and outlook
I mail an exe file to a distribution list (group), everyone receives the
mail and the exe file. But he only receive my mail and not the exe file,
if other attachment like powerpoint file he can receive. The error
included in the email is

'Outlook blocked access to the following potentially unsafe

Is there a way that I could configured so that he could receive the exe
file? I mean without renaming the extension file.
Maybe configured in his desktop registry or in the Exch server ?
