    I have several links that were sent as attachments to an e-mail, but Outlook won't let me open them -- says they are blocked.

    I thought I knew how to unblock them, but neither me nor my Inet search seems to work.

    How do I unblock attachments?

    Regards,

    These are .url files? In earlier versions of Outlook, you could use an add-in named Attachment Options (Slovak Technical Services Attachment Options). However, it does not yet list Outlook 2010 compatibility.

    I think the add-in worked by making some registry changes, so if you do a little research on the registry keys used to list restricted attachment file extensions, you might be able to replicate the changes in Outlook 2010. Or maybe it works differently now.
