attachment safety in OL2000



  • 1. Creating rule to delete "sobig.f" from multiple Inbox/accounts (Exchange 2K environment)

  • 2. Junk Senders.txt variables?
    Hi, my Junk Senders.txt file is starting to get HUGE - because for a long time I have diligently added every spam sender to the list (added a "add to junk mail list" button next to the delete button in the toolbar:) However, a little experimentation appears to indicate that "?" and "*" are allowed wildcard! eg ???? seems to filter all senders such as XXXX@XXXXX.COM out, but ??** doesn't.... it seems to only filter out XXXX@XXXXX.COM combinations. These wildcards however don't function consistently, eg I have not found a combination where *@mx??.*.* would filter out XXXX@XXXXX.COM Can anyone shed any light on the possible variables or wildcards which might allow a more sophisticated junk filter than a HUGE list of addresses? Does anyone at Microsoft monitor this newsgroup? Are there any undocumented tricks for writing "clever" junk mail filter rules into the Junk Senders.txt or Exception List.txt files?

3.OL2000: level 3 attachments open confirmation

Where in the registry can one modify whether Outlook 2000 (SP-3) prompts the
user for opening or saving an attachment for a given file extension? (Note
that I'm talking strictly about (security) level 3 attachments here. For
example, now when I double click a .doc attachment, it is automatically
opened, because previously I checked a box that said I shouldn't be asked
again in the future. How would I get the prompt back?)



4.Archiving and attachments in OL2000


We use MS Outlook 2000 SP-3 on one of our office computers. The user of
this PC was asking me if archiving maintained the attachments or are
they included in the archive, or are they deleted?  Does archiving save
the attachments or are they removed after the archiving process.  They
have some valuable attachments and would be terribly sad if the they
were lost.

5.OL2000: "Could not open one or more attachments" error


I am getting a strange error. When I create a new message 
and attempt to add an attachment to the message, when I 
click on "Insert" I get an error message "Could not open 
one or more attachments", and an OK button.

The strange thing is, the attachment does *not* show up 
at the bottom of the message, but it *is* attached to the 
message and gets sent when the message is sent. If I look 
at the message while it is in the Outbox or Sent Items, 
then the paperclip icon is shown and if you open the 
message the attachment *does* show up at the bottom of 
the message.

This also happens intermittently with messages I have 
received; sometimes (with no pattern I can discern) the 
paperclip does not appear in the preview pane, and if I 
open the message I get the same "Could not..." message 
once for every attachment the message has. It doesn't 
happen with every message - in fact, it happens quite 
rarely - and it can work fine and then not work on the 
same message during the same session. 

I do always get the error when creating a message 
(including new messages, replying to messages and 
forwarding messages).

The type of file involved does not matter, or the drive 
the file was on. I have tried "Detect Errors", and I have 
reinstalled the entire Office suite.

Please help!
