Hiya

This filter that they have set up: Does it block zips? If not, try zipping it and then sending the zip.

Hi ntlgnce ,

Are we talking about Outlook EXpress 6.0, or Outlook 2002/XP?

If it's the first, start Outlook Express, and then on the Tools menu, click Options.

Click the Security tab, and then click to uncheck the Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus check box under Virus Protection

If it's the second, take a look at http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/esecup/getexe.htm

Good luck,

That sounds like it might work.. so if i zip it the server wont see it as a .exe file?

Hopefully not. Some administartors block the changing of the settings that Tony mentioned. Ours do.
