How to Customize Attachment Security Behavior
WARNING: If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.

You can modify the attachment security behavior in Outlook 2002 if you are using Outlook in one of the following scenarios:
You are not using Outlook in an Exchange environment.
In an Exchange environment, the administrator has not configured the Outlook Security settings to disallow changes to the attachment security behavior.
In these scenarios, modify the attachment security behavior by making a modification to the registry. To do so:
Quit Outlook 2002, if it is running.
Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK.
See if the following registry key exists. If it does, skip to step 5.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\O utlook\Security

If the registry key does not exist, create it. To create the registry key, locate and then click the following registry key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft


Click the Edit menu, click New, and then click Key.
Type Office, and then press ENTER.
Click the Edit menu, click New, and then click Key.
Type 10.0, and then press ENTER.
Click the Edit menu, click New, and then click Key.
Type Outlook, and then press ENTER.
Click the Edit menu, click New, and then click Key.
Type Security, and then press ENTER.
Click the Edit menu, click New, and then click String Value.
Type the following name for the new value:

Level1Remove


Press ENTER.
Right-click the new string value name, and then click Modify.
Type the extension of the file type that you want to open in Outlook 2002. For example:

.exe

To specify multiple file types, use the following format:

.exe;.com


Click OK.
Quit Registry Editor.
Restart your computer.
When you start Outlook 2002, you can open the file types that you specified in the registry.

NOTE: Microsoft recommends that you enable only the file types that you need. If you rarely receive a particular file type, Microsoft recommends that you give Outlook 2002 temporary access to the file type in question, and then reconfigure Outlook 2002 to block the file type by undoing the changes to registry.
