    Fix for 2000 SP2? (Office 2K,SP1)

    I just read about this fix (below) for the dreaded email attachment problem in Outlook 2K SP2. Has anyone aside from the author (Chris Pirillo-The Lockergnome)tried it?

    "...it comes with the dreaded Outlook E-mail Security update that halts EVERY type of questionable attachment. . I inadvertently installed it (and there's no way to uninstall it). Time to do a little hacking! If this has happened to you, here's what you need to do. Find OUTLLIB.DLL and open it in any hexadecimal editor (I prefer UltraEdit). It's nothing but code, baby. Be sure to make a backup copy first! Now, do a Find for the first "URL" string. You should see it surrounded by other familiar file extensions, like ZIP, VBS, and SHS. Guess what you're going to do? That's right! Change "URL" to "LOL" - "ZIP" to "OMG" - "EXE" to "CJP" (or some other tri-lettered farcical aquatic ceremony). Save your changes and full access to those files in Outlook 2000 should now be restored. "
