Hi every one,
I have just sent 2 jpg files via Windows live mail -they were deactivated bt Microsoft but this file type is not listed on their dangerous files list. Has any kind soul seen this problem before ? If so, is there a solution available ?

I have sent small .exe files via email which is a definite no no but there is a little trick which seems to work, remove the three letter file extension and get the recipient of your email to add it back on before openingthe file.
