I am running XP pro and Outlook 2000. Outlook wont allow me to receive certain file types such as .inf and .exe files. How do I remove this feature?

.exe.files are executionable (program) files and any good software will block this. If you know the sender get him/her to re-send it as a ZIP file and this will be accessable to you. If you don't know the user, then don't EVER try to open an .exe or .inf file!
