emailing AutoIt3 exe

11 posts in this topic

I'm trying to email a compiled autoit3 script (the exe). Outlook is complaining with the message "Outlook blocked access to this potentially unsafe attachment." While I can not be sure, this behavior may be new to AutoIt3.

How can a compiled AutoIt3 script be emailed to someone using Outlook?

Thanks for any clues.

Have you tried zipping it. You should zip it by default, which can prevent, someone using a possible corrupted file.

Newer Outlook version block all exe files, no matter if they're AutoIt scripts or not, so this has nothing to do with AutoIt.

Just zip the compiled script and then send it. Or send the AU3 script and direct them to the AUtoIt website.

Thanks!

That works fine. Is the issue with Outlook all exe or just AutoIt exe?

Outlook.

Check out this page to get some more information about it..

Edit : I just tested the link, and it doesn't appear to work for me anymore.

Maybe it's only me..

Outlook blocks certain extentions for safety reasons (virus etc).

Usually when I send a *.zip, *.exe, *.jpg or a *.txt file, I have to change the extension on it, otherwise our exchange server strips the file off and doesn't let it go through.

I hear ya, it does suck. :lmao:

Hi,

Just use Outlook security patch which can fix the problem!

I also know that Gmail blocks *.exe attachments.

In fact, the mail servers of most internet service providers remove *.exe attachments; so even if you send it, your friend likely won't receive it.

As people have suggested above:

1) Zip the file

2) change the file extension to something like *.ex_ and have the recipient rename it.

Wrong. Most don't filter email unless the user asked for e.g. a spam or antivirus filter as this is illegal in some countries. And even then the providers are not allowed to simply delete the mails unless the user especially asked for the automatic deletion of the emails.
