Make sure that you don't have any rules set that would make you not get some emails.

You could say I've been around.

I found that either Hotmail or Outlook (or both?) block .exe files with no warning what so ever. One of them will allow .exe's in .zip's. Can't remember which one. Too lazy to test.

Perhaps this is what you mean by "files in my e-mails" ?

Try getting the person to either rename the file extension or zipping the file. When it comes through you can rename the file extension.
Especially if the Level1Remove didn't work.
here's Microsoft's instructions....
