Various file types are defined in Outlook as safe and unsafe, the unsafe attachments cannot be opened where as the safe attachment file types can be opened. There is no direct option provided in the Outlook to manage the safe and unsafe attachment file types, but you can easily control or manage the safe and unsafe file types using the Outlook Attachment Enabler which is a free software.
