Making Outlook Open "Bad" Attachments

I forget about this every time and have to search the net again for the info: since Outlook 2000 there have been certain file types that can’t be opened or saved by default when they arrive attached to an email. If such attachments are encountered, Outlook shows the following message: “Outlook blocked access to the following potentially unsafe attachments”. Everything you need to know to change this is on this Microsoft KB page, and it even works with Outlook 2007.

Sorry, this blog does not support comments.

I used various blog hosting services since this blog was established in 2005, but unfortunately they turned out to be unreliable in the long term and comment threads were lost in unavoidable transitions. At this time I don't want to enable third-party services for comments since it has become obvious in recent years that these providers invariably monetize information about their visitors and users.

Please use the links in the page footer to get in touch with me. I'm available for conversations on Keybase, Matrix, Mastodon or Twitter, as well as via email.
