Usually when I try and open an attachment with Outhouse (here at work) it tries to make sure that I'm happy with what I'm doing because the attachment could be a virus.

I just opened a powerpoint presentation, and it didn't ask me at all.

Powerpoint must be entirely virus secure!

As I understand it, new versions of Outlook refuse to open certain executables whatsoever. It doesn't even let you save them out.

There is an option, hidden deep within 'tools/options', that lets you tell it this behaviour is considered silly, iirc.

About bloody time, too. Anybody who can't figure out how to disable it shouldn't be trusted with executables delivered by email.
