Gmail Illegal Attachment Fix

Recently I've had some problems receiving .exe and .zip (with an .exe file zipped in it) files as attachments with Gmail. It pissed me off for a while because I figure what's the point of the 2 gig goodness when you can't receive space-hogging programs from your friends? Fortunately for me has posted a fix. Now, I admit I haven't tried it yet, but it makes sense and sounds simple enough. Any one with comments on this or other Gmail problems/fixes fel free to let me know.

It works. I just tried it.

Either change the exe-extension to something else or put the exe-file in a zip folder and change the zip-extension. I did the latter and changed the extension to "zip2".
