Easily unblock (access to) unsafe attachment types in Outlook

Let’s say you received a message with an attachment of EXE file in Outlook. Generally you can’t access this attachment because Outlook identifies the EXE file as a potentially unsafe attachment (see following screenshot). How can you access the exe attachment when you pretty sure it’s safe? Kutools for Outlook comes up with the Safe Attachment Extensions option to help Outlook users easily unblock or access to attachments with specific file extensions.

Note: For accessing many types of unsafe attachments, please type all unsafe attachments’ extensions into the Safe Attachment Extensions (Separator = ;) box, and separate these extensions with semicolon “;”, such as “exe;msi”.

3. Now a dialog box comes out and reminds you to restart Microsoft Outlook. Please click the OK button to close this dialog box, and then restart Microsoft Outlook.

When back to the message with the unsafe attachment, you will see the unsafe attachment is visible and you can access it as normal. See screenshot:
