Attachments in messaging problem

Hi all...aside from the crappy battery l;ife I love the Touch Pro. Today though, I sent a .cab file from my pc at work via gmail to my gmail account I use on my phone. When I go to open the attachment on the phone it gives me an error saying I cannot open the file because it is potentially harmful. Is there a security setting I can change to stop it from doing this?
Thanks a ton

Not sure about that but you can save it local or to the SD card and then run the cab.

Re: Attachments in messaging problem

All you have to do is use your stylus, hold down on the file name and you'll get the option to "save" then you can save it to your phone and click on it to install.... what happens in the email window is when you "select" it the mail software thinks you're 'installing'.... so hold the stylus down, save to phone option comes up and you can save hten install....

Re: Attachments in messaging problem

theres no settings in the phone for for security of files in email options... not sure why it didnt work..

its because the cab isnt saved ON your phone yet im guessing, it has to be moved to either sd or internal memory...cant install something that isnt on ur phone yet...

Re: Attachments in messaging problem

Which is true..but infact, if you click on that file before its saved to phone the message that pops up in the email app is that the file is potentially dangerous and thus won't be installed.....

Re: Attachments in messaging problem

Google will not let you open a .cab file when sent due to their security options, if you zip the file then send it youll be just fine

Re: Attachments in messaging problem

Thanks guys. I kind of feel like a dolt but hey...now I know. I simply held the stylus on the attachment for a second and it let me save it. Was the cab worth it? Naw..but at least I am now aware..
