I use messenger a lot. Can do everything with it but
transfer files. I have sucessfully done voice, video,
whiteboard, RA, you name it, but I can't get the file
transfer to work. Keep getting a message saying file
transfer is blocked, and to contact my ISP. I did, and
they say they do not block it. Any clue what to do???

Having a similiar problem. Don't see much of it here however. One of
my contacts has 'email address not verified' in the address field.
Wonder if that is the problem. (File transfers work but neither of us
can access them.)

1. Have you tried to change the file extension? Certain
file extensions are blocked by default.
2. After receiving a file you have to unblock it before
you can use it: in Windows explorer right-click on the
received file. Properties/Unblock.

I updated WM from 5.0.0482 to 5.1.0639 and found that the function of
transfer picture and exe file will fail, i have to zip it, it is very
inconvenience, is there any way can fix that? or any reg key can be added?
thanks.
