Email attachment blocked file extension list

Group of file extensions and file types blocked by email clients such as Microsoft Outlook in email message attachments, in attempt to stop viruses and malicious software spreading through internet via email.

To help protect your computer, Microsoft Outlook does not allow you to receive files of certain types (such as .exe files) as attachments, because of their potential for introducing a virus into your computer. Outlook blocks these files by default.

Attachment file types blocked by Microsoft Outlook: There are two levels of attachment security. Access to Level 1 files is blocked and can't be changed. When you receive an attachment with a Level 2 file type, you will be prompted to save the file to your hard disk. If you use Microsoft Exchange Server, your system administrator can add or remove file types for both levels of e-mail security. If a file type is added to both levels, it will be treated as a Level 1 file type.
