They actually did!! I seem not to be able to even extraxt an exe or
other executable file attachment from any mail in Outlook 2000 at
all. Even if I know for sure it is safe I can't get at it and had
to ask the sender to resend it in ZIP format in the past.

Didn't try to hard to find a config option 15 levels deep in some
configuration settings though, but just decided they had overdone
themselves ;-)
