Le Café Central de Deva
... Deva blogs!!
I changed the way of blogging, developing, designing and assisting my customers. Re-designed the site and started using the latest Windows Live Writer!! Additionally added Microsoft Translator gadget available @ top of page, so that you can change the page in your preferred language!!
Recently one of the developer sent out an email to me stating the he face 'new' issue with Outlook 2007, which blocks access to some of the mail's attachments. When they try to access the attachment they get the following error message “Outlook blocked access to the following potentially unsafe attachments: ”. He also complained that the Outlook blocks the specific attachment; he cannot save, delete, open, print, or can’t work with the attachment in Outlook. For him it’s quite annoying as he is using Outlook from version 2000 onwards (2000, 2003 & 2007), but he noticed this strange behavior in 2007 and want to know that it might be a bug or new security feature with Outlook?
Later i checked regarding the same and responded him to refer the support KB which states methods that he can use if he have to open an attachment that is blocked in Outlook. Additionally, this article contains information about the kinds of attachments that Outlook blocks. Per KB’s excerpt, it’s bit clearly mentioned that “All versions of Outlook since Outlook 2000 Service Release 1 (SR1) include a security feature that blocks attachments that might put your computer at risk for viruses or other threats. Although Outlook blocks access to the attachment, the attachment still exists in the e-mail message…”.
Also guided him to check whether the mail contains the actual attachment or just a shortcut to a file in Outlook(if we right-click the original file, drag the file to the Inbox folder in Outlook, and then click Send with Shortcut), which may also prompt outlook to throw this message. Please note: Shortcuts that have file name extensions of .lnk or .url are Level 1 e-mail attachment types and are not available to the recipient.
Hope this helps.

With respect to my previous blog post regarding the message size increase of some e-mails sent from the Microsoft Outlook 2010 Beta, now you got fix from Outlook Product Group blog. The Office team has been hard at work building a fix for this issue, which is available immediately. If you are using the Office 2010 Beta, please take a moment to download this important fix.
Download Outlook 2010 Beta fix for 32-bit Office 2010
Download Outlook 2010 Beta fix for 64-bit Office 2010
What this fix will do? This fix prevents future messages from consuming unnecessary space, but doesn’t resize existing messages. If you reply or forward an existing message that is affected by this bug, it remains enlarged.
In the blog post, it’s nice to hear about the figures regarding the Outlook 2010 beta download/usage – “…although Office 2010 is in Beta and is not final, we are both excited and humbled by the fact that more than 2.5 million people have downloaded and used the Beta. We want to make sure you have a great experience with Office 2010…”
Bravo, way to go!!
