    the blocking my MDB files (verison 6)

    I do development of small MsAccess data bases files, with my lasted WIndows update I can non obtained Mdb files that I send even to to myself from my country home computer. I get a message that Outlook Express blocked it. Is there a way to unblock mdb files.

    In the old days, OE6 had a single setting to block all attachments or not block any. Has it gotten more sophisticated? Anyway, one workaround is to compress the MDB file into a ZIP archive. Considering how big MDB files are, this isn't such a bad thing to do anyway.

    I think that it's all or nothing in OE: you can't unblock specific file types. I agree with Jefferson that zipping is the best solution; because of their size I would never send mdb files as such anyway.

    What happens if you just change the extension from, say, .mdb to .txt ? (and then change it back again when received).
