Re: Send cab files etc over Pocket MSN Messenger???

"Your file wasn't sent because we detected a possible safety issue."

Does anyone know if there is a fix to be able to send these files or any good alternative programs to send files between devices? Thanks guys!
The reason it's probably a "safety" issue is probably because a CAB file is considered an "executable" file. Is it possible to just rename the file extension (like from .CAB to .CXX or something like that) ? I have to do similar stuff when sending EXE files through our company's email.
