    I have used a registry key "Level1Remove' so that outlook does allow incoming attachments to be seen. Outlook still prevents opening certain attachments, offering only an option to save to another disl location. For example, I can directly open .doc and .jpg files, but .xls files must first be saved to another disk location. Can Outlook be 'educated' to allow file types to be seen and opened from within the message?

    I am not actually having trouble with attachments being blocked. I can see all attachments in messages. What I would like is a way of bypassing Outlook's way of insisting that some (but not all) attachments must be saved to a system drive before they can be opened

    I think you will find answers in that thread if you read some of the links, particularly http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/esecup/getexe.asp, and also see http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/ese...p#Level1Remove for details on the Level1Remove key and the Level1Add Key. Be sure that you are setting the keys for the correct version of Office.

    Reading these threads again, it seems clear that although I can Unblock selected attachment types, there is no way round being forced to save them to a system drive before opening. Thanks for the information
