I am using Windows 7 and Outlook 2007 with the latest Outlook Connector (Windows Live Hotmail), and I have Qwest DSL with an MSN premium account. I've encountered a problem where I can't send a .zip file containing an .exe file. The message error code is 0x8DE00006 with a server error code of 5203. If I rename the .exe file to .exe1, and then zip it, I can send the file. If I use the Windows Live Mail program, I can't send the .zip file containing the .exe file, but I can by using the Hotmail program on the MSN home page.




It sounds like a attachment security issue, but I thought .zip files (even if they contained .exe files) wouldn't be blocked.




Thanks for the assistance,




Mark

I'd think its an antivirus issue, not zip and their server is not accepting zips containing exe's. It works via the web interface because it connects to an internal SMTP server and its harder for viruses to use the web interface to send mail.

Google shows quite a few have the same error but not resolution- many times it corrected itself, but since it works for you if you rename the exe, i think its the antivirus kicking it back.

You could try sending an encrypted zip instead of renaming the exe.
