I added "com;exe;bat;hlp;inf;msi;pif;reg;url;vbs", of course without the quotes. I figured this would be enough. If I have to, I'll add more.
I only had one small problem when I first rebooted my system, non of my programs would load in the system tray. Not one icon even showed up. When I placed my mouse cursor in the taskbar I would see the Hourglass, not the arrow. After rebooting my system a second time, giving it the three-finger-salute and choosing reboot, everything worked just fine. STRANGE!!!
I emailed myself an exe and bat file. When I clicked on the attachment, exe or bat, I only have the option to save the file to disk, I cannot open it from within the email. That works for me.
I'm running Norton SystemWorks 2002 so I should be safe.
If you are running ZoneAlarm Pro 3, you can do one of two things. 1) Turn off the "MailSafe Settings" under "Email Protection". 2) Leave "Email Protection" ON, go to "Attachments" under "Email Protection" and pick which file extensions you want to "Quarantine" or "Allow" to go thru. You need to allow "com, exe, bat, etc...", whatever you put into the registry string.
I bought the Office XP Standard Upgrade. I went from Office 2000 to XP.
Outlook 2002 pretty much looks the same. The Rules Wizard is different. All the attachments that are sent to you now show-up under the Subject Line. There are other feature, which I am still learning, like testing your account settings.
I haven't used it long enough to tell you to switch over to it, I just now I like it.
I did have a problem at first with setting up the Rules Wizard and using the Find button. I answered a wrong question somewhere and it took a little work for me to get it working. Outlook 2002 new I was using the Outlook 2000's Rules Wizard before and after the Office XP upgrade, I was unable to Get Outlook 2002's Rules Wizard or Find to work. Like I said, I picked the wrong option somewhere and screwed things up. Now everything is working correctly. I think the fix was to remove the Rules Wizard and Find buttons from the toolbar and then re-add them. I was trying everything.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
