Sending EXE.Files via Hotmail

Does anyone know if it's possible to send Exe. files via MSN Hotmail?

Thanks,
Harry

Hello Harry,

Normally you would just have the .exe in a ZIP file, and send the ZIP file instead. This avoids the .exe from possibly getting blocked.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I just tried with and without zipping it up, and only the zipped one went through.

another way is to use dropbox and paste the public link to the exe in your message

I just did a test. Hotmail won't let you attach a file with an "exe" extension but it will accept and send the same file if you change the extension to something else like "exee".
