Allow access to attached files in Outlook

Allow access to attached files in Outlook

Outlook changed its security settings dramatically. You are not allowed to detached executables (.EXE) or other potential “dangerous” files. To allow detaching the files you want follow these steps.

NOTE: Always make sure that you have a backup of your current settings.

NOTE: Log-on as an administrator

Go to STARTRun and type in regedit

Select HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\12.0\Outlook\

NOTE: 12.0 can also be 10.0 or other numbers depending on your Office version you are running. In this case Microsoft Office 2007 has been installed.

Make sure you have an entry named SECURITY. If not Create it (New → Key)

Create a new STRING VALUE and name it Level1Remove.

Now add the extensions you would like to detach
