Emailing Slideshows as.EXE - Blocked by recipiant




Hi
Even if he turns it off to let the other end get it their antivirus may sti
ll stop them from showing it which has happened to me many times but yes yo
u can put it in another folder and give it a new name and then zip it up an
d send it and try it that way but generally it is not that hard to change t
he security settings which is more likely the case in stead of the anti vir
us preventing it to allow exe files.
One other thing of note is that if anyone uses Gmail they can not send nor
receive any exe files at all.

Emailing Slideshows as.EXE - Blocked by recipiant



Hello , new to this foum and XAT.

A student of mine uses XAT to send photo slide shows to his friends.

He says he has problems with the recipients not being able to open his
Emailed slideshows.

Is it because their Anti-Virus is treating the file ( as an .EXE ) as
a threat ? and ,if so, is there a way to overcome this ( i.e Put it
in- side a Folder before Emailing ).

Have suggested pre-warning the recipient and then they turn off
Anti-Virus etc., open the Emailed slideshow , then restore the
Anti-Virus , but seems very time consuming and not suitable as far as
my student is concerned.

Any better ideas ( Im sure there is ! ) would be gratefully received.

Thanks in advance.

Rename the file to "whatever.e-x-e" and tell the recipient to rename it back
to exe.

I am not familiar with G mail. Maybe rename to "whatever.txt" will fool it?
