Its probably one of the ISP's who are deleting the email because a lot virus are spread via EXE files. can you get the sender to use Winzip and send it?

As Valvegrid says, ask the sender to zip the file to disguise it, or change the extention. You will have to change it back to .exe when you receive it.
