Outlook blocks access to a list of potentially unsafe attachments. Microsoft, in an attempt to make Outlook more
secure with regards to computer viruses delivered by email in the form of
attachments, added a feature to Microsoft Outlook that blocks attachments of
certain file types. These file types are referred to as Level 1 file
attachments. Level 1 attachments, by default, are hidden by Microsoft Outlook
and cannot be viewed, saved or opened.
Because Outlook now blocks many popular file types by classifying them, by
default, as Level 1 attachments, many Outlook users are seeking more control
over receiving and manipulating these file types from within Microsoft Outlook.
However, Microsoft does not provide a simple to use interface for common
Outlook users to select which file types they want to receive and manipulate
from within Outlook.
AttachmentSecurity for Microsoft Outlook solves this problem by presenting an
easy-to-use interface that allows you to select precisely which file attachment types you want to block or unblock from within Outlook. Because AttachmentSecurity
is a Microsoft Outlook addin, you control it directly from within your own copy
of Outlook; using it when you need it, while keeping Outlook secure from
viruses when you don't. Best of all, it's free to use!
