When you send an email with an attachment from your Favorites, the last 3 letters of the attachment are url
. That is what is known as the extension. To use another example, pictures can have a jpeg extension where the last 3 letters would be jpeg
. As usasma
stated, Outlook Express blocks the url
extension because it considers this a dangerous extension. You will have to click the link to open the page in your browser, copy the link from the address bar at the top, manually open a new email to send to him, & paste the url link into the message area & send it to him that way. By the way, double check with your friend, that when he unchecks the Do not allow aatachments to be opened/saved that could be a virus
, that he has to click Apply
in order for the changes to be applied.Edit
: When you right click on the Favorite link that you want to send, & choose the Send To > Mail Recipient
option, the actual url address is included in the body of the message that you are trying to send. If this is the case on your end, another option would be before you send the email you could right click on the attachment & delete it, thus sending just the address of the link.
