    With the latest WLM update, I still get the warning: "Prohibited file type."

    This warning has a small shield with an X in the upper right corner and the
    following statement next to it (highlited in red):

    "This message contains an attachment whose file type is considered dangerous
    The file has been deactivated. Get Help

    The file type was a .jpg that I sent to myself as an attachment.

  2. Go to Tools, Safety Options, Security, uncheck "Block images..." and also
    uncheck "Do not allow attachments..."

    Option for "Do not allow attachments..." is greyed out. Any idea why?

  4. I don't know. Perhaps your antivirus is meddling with WLM.
