googlemail (and most other email providers) blocks files that end with .exe for security; so TweetMyPC has to rename the file before sending it to you.

Are you able to run the application if you change it's name from file.exe.name to file.exe ?

Hi,
I change it to remshutdn1.exe and it could work. Other then exe files, I won't be able to get other files like txt or pdf files. What is the problem?
Thank you for your reply. I appreciate it.

Best Regards,
