(Solved) - E-mail(13 posts)
There is a reason that most email services won't allow attaching .exe files: it's a good way to spread malware. I knew about Xhi's trick of changing the file extension but didn't want to share it since I didn't know the OP's reason for wanting to send a .exe file. This is not to say there aren't good reasons.
Changing it to .txt does not spread malware since someone would have to purposefully change it back to .exe for it to execute. Simply clicking on it brings up notepad.
Looking at the link in vistamike's post http://support.google.com/mail.....nswer=6590 it says among other things that you can get that message for other reasons than invalid file type. It also says, ref ruja's post...
It isn't possible to send a zip file containing a password-protected zip file. Please de-compress all files or remove the password protection if possible.
