The short answer is that they wouldn't be able to do that.
...EXE file distribution issue
I am about to start distributing some software as an attachment to e-mails. All the

OUTLOOK is set to maximum protection, and we don't want to change it. Unfortunately the
Setup software I am using creates an EXE file, and outlook wont let any of the recipients
even look at it much less open it!.
Is there some way that recipients can override the inabilty to open an exe file on an
exception basis? Can one create a script to make this easy for them? For example if the

If yes, I think you have two choices.

*** Messages sent...cannot receive exe files
We are running on exchange 2003 (plus small business

Why not open the series and put an end date of today on the recurrence?
That should remove all future occurrences, but keep the past ones.
I believe I read that Outlook will keep only 18 months of past entries. Do

You probably mean Word 2007.
Try selecting the graphic and copying it (CTRL+C). Open Paint and use Paste

any format Paint supports.
