View Full Version : Is Google Paranoid?

I have been using a mail program called called " Free Agent" since Windows95.
Recently I tried to send a copy zipped up in an attachment to a friend who has Gmail. Google refused to accept it on the grounds that it was a Virus. I realise that there is a virus named 'agent' but this program was around before Google existed! It would seem that the name is important which is illogical.

I change all the relevant file names & re zipped it. Still no go. Sent the original via clear.net & had no problems.

Change FreeAgent.zip to FreeAgent.old, send it, get you friend at the other end to change it back to .zip once it is on the computer. QED.

Usually if a file or zipped file has an exe file in it, Gmail will delete it.

Just use a file sharing website like drop.io or MS' SkyDrive
