Journal Jugalator's Journal: In more Gmail news...

I love the service so don't think otherwise with me complaining about two things recently. :-) However, another peculiar thing -- they just refused to receive a mail with an attached zip file that had a single file in it -- a Windows Registry (.reg) file. In other words, not even a binary file.

I would understand this if they did it against viruses, but then shouldn't they just block executable files?

The error message:

<>: host[] said: 552
          5.7.0 Illegal Attachment

So now I'm only attaching 7-zip archives. :-P

Update: In other Gmail-related news, I just saw a page about operators you can use in both filters and mail searches that I hadn't seen before. Very nice. I only knew about from:, to: and OR before.
