Some of you might feel very frustrated whenever you can’t open your attachment in Microsoft Outlook. Microsoft Outlook XP detect every attachment and lock the attachment if it feel is unsafe. (I’m not really sure what’s the standard they use to judge if attachment is safe or not). I only know they lock my attachment most of the time.
To unlock the attachment restriction in Ms Outlook, just follow the steps below:-
– Start => Run => Enter regedit
– Look for HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Software\ Microsoft\ Office\ 10.0\ Outlook\ Security
– Create a new String value Level1Remove (modify if exists) and add the extension that you would like to allow for download (seperated by comma) ex: exe;jpg;gif;png
