2093RE: OUTLOOK EXPRESS
- Oct 22, 2003There is also a way to enable Outlook attachments but you have to go in the
registry file for that. As long as you are very, very careful, it's just
like editing a normal text file. Edit the wrong piece and you can cause
problems with your system.
I have the instructions I can forward on if anyone wishes.
