    Open unblocked attachement without having to save (Outlook XP)

    I have unblocked specific level 1 attachments (via registry edit) so I can now view the attachments that were previously being blocked in outlook but I can only save the file to disk before opening it.

    This is quite annoying as I receive 2 daily html attachements I need to view and would rather just open it and view then delete.

    A google search only shows how to overcome this but appears to be only for exchange users whereas I am running standalone via pop3 account, Does anyone have any work arounds to overcome this?

    Any asisstance is greatly appreciated.

    When I was running Office XP I used <A target="_blank" HREF="http://www.pcworld.com/downloads/file_description/0,fid,19240,00.asp">DetachXP From PCWorld.
    </A> to clear the different file types I wanted to down load.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Thanks Dave but this doesnt have html or htm extensions in the list. Will it still allowing opening without having to save?

    I'm pretty sure I've never had HTML files blocked by Outlook; I send them out to people all the time because I never thought there would be a problem. Do you by any chance have .HTML and/or .HTM on your Level2 list?

    Re: Open unblocked attachement without having to s

    Thank you so much - I checked the level 1 file types on microsoft and confirmed .htm & .html are not in the list but for some reason I had added them. I have now removed those extensions and I am back in business.

    I appreciate your assistance.
