    tools>>options>>security tab>>there is a check box that says do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus. uncheck it.

    Search the MS knowledge base for articles on this. By default, Outlook blocks certain file types as attachments. There are ways through reg edits and maybe programs to add to or modify the list of blocked attachments.

    I wouldn't bother though... like above have the attachments zipped up or at the least rename the file extension to get it.

    Hmm... I've had that for a LONG time now even before I signed up here. It's my avatar for a few other boards I am on too... Oh well.

    Considering I made it here myself for a few OT members about a year ago, I disagree.

    A list of names? I don't care who else has it...

    Lol. Either way; I made it. Someone stole it from me here, and republished elsewhere..

    Unless you are talking about another Jeep forum.. In that case, chances are you got it from me. I'm on just about every Jeep forum out there with that avatar.
