    Same sorta thing here. I tried to send two password protected rar files through Outlook Express/isp and copped a nasty reply sorta along the lines of "Deleted" and "don't do it again". :cautious:

    users have posted about this in the Kl forums as well.
    the solution seems to be to encryt the file names as well.

    I don't know if this will work but you can try to rename for example sample.rar to sample.bak maybey than you will be able to send. But you need first to enable the option in windows to see the file extensions.

    sometimes they add the samples and a few days later they tell you.
