    outlook 2002 (10)

    From ie6, when I click Mail from the tool bar and choose "send a link", Outlook launches (which is good) but I get the following message: "outlook blocked access to the following potentially unsafe attachments: postlist.url." Although, the e-mail message itself says that "your files are attached and ready to send with this message". When I hit send, this message appears "This item contains attachments that are potentially unsafe. Ricipients using MS Outlook may not be able to read these attachments. Do you want to send anyway?" I select "yes" but when the e-mail (to myself) is received, there is no attachment. Can anyone help? Thank you. <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20><font face="Comic Sans MS">text</font face=comic>

    I have the same problem: I'm just going over to MS KB to check to see if an update is available for this[ <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29>bug? or more sloppy programming?]. If I want to send a thread or link to anyone I have to copy and paste from Address bar into e-mail.

    Re: outlook 2002 (10)

    Found this article that tells you how to modify the registry: Q256986 - Description of the Microsoft Windows Registry ... "SUMMARY Outlook 2002 includes a new security feature that blocks attachments that are considered unsafe. If you receive an e-mail message that contains one of the blocked file types, you may receive the following warning message: Outlook blocked access to the following potentially unsafe attachments:" [...] apparently the attachment is?? there - you just don't see it http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...b;en-us;Q290497". Lovely. I'll experiment with this another day ...

    You can also go to slipstick.com and download a com add-in that does the same thing as the registry entry described in the Q article. The only difference is this appears as a new tab when you go to the options menu. Not only that, it allows you to specify which extensions you want to add or remove quickly.

    Re: outlook 2002 (10)

    if you want to send a text url, not attachment, look for mailto_url at slipstick. It works with all versions of IE and any mail program- you right click on a page to send a text version of the url. It's better actually, since removing urls from your blocked list doesn't affect those who you are sending to.

    To send, you really don't need to remove it - ignore the warning and send - but text urls are more user friendly.
