    Go to Start | Run
    type in Regedit

    In the left Pane, find the following key:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Software\ Microsoft\ Office\ 10.0\ Outlook\ Security

    Create a new string value by Edit | New | String Value
    Name the new value Level1Remove.

    Double-click the new Level1Remove to edit it, and enter the filename extensions you'd like to stop Outlook from blocking.
    Extensions should be typed in lower case, without the dots (.), and separated by semicolons ( ; ). For example, type


    to allow .exe, .mdb, and .vbs attachments, respectfully.

    Click Ok and then close the Registry Editor when you're done. You may have to restart Outlook for this change to take effect.
