Default Disabling attachment security in Microsoft Outlook

Disabling attachment security in Microsoft Outlook
Microsoft has prevented anyone from using a default installation of Office XP and Office 2003 from opening certain types of attachments in Outlook in an attempt to stop certain email-borne virii and worms. These file types include all .EXE, .DLL, .VBS, and .COM files plus many more. In a technical environment, or one where virus protection is in use, this is downright annoying.

To disable the banned attachments feature in Microsoft Outlook:

Office XP: Use a registry editing tool to navigate to the following key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\O utlook\Security

Office 2003: Use a registry editing tool to navigate to the following key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\O utlook\Security

Insert a value with the following details:
Data Type:SZ
Value Name:Level1Remove
Value:Semi-colon delimited list of file extensions you wish to allow
e.g.: .exe;.dll;.com;.bat;.vbs;.asp;.html;.url;.htm;.asa ;.inc;.css;.msi;.cab
Restart Outlook for the changes to take effect.
