ARCHIVED: In Outlook Web Access, why can't I save .exe, .bat, .com, or .cmd files?

In Outlook Web Access (OWA), if you try to save a file which ends in .exe, .bat, .com, or .cmd, you will see an error such as this:

"Internet Explorer cannot download text.exe?attach=1 from www.exchange.iu.edu.
Internet Explorer was not able to open this Internet site. The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found. Please try again later."

This behavior is due to the implementation of recommended Microsoft security settings, and therefore not strictly an error. To work around the security requirement, you can set up an IMAP connection to your Exchange account (i.e., configure an email client to use IMAP to access your Exchange account), which will give you the ability to save the attachment. For more information, see the Knowledge Base document ARCHIVED: Reading your Exchange mail using a desktop client.
