Accept MDB files in Outlook

When you receive an e-mail in Microsoft Outlook that contains an attachment, you might receive the following message at the top of the message or of the Reading Pane:
Outlook blocked access to the following potentially unsafe attachments: []

As default (since some security update) MDB files as well as some other file extensions are stopped but this registry hack solves it if you want to
9.0 is for Outlook 2000 SP3
10.0 is for Outlook 2002
11.0 is for Outlook 2003
12.0 is for Outlook 2007
14.0 is for Outlook 2010
15.0 is for Outlook 2013
Run Regedit, and go to this key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook\Security
Under that key, add a new string value named Level1Remove or use the existing one
For the value for Level1Remove, enter a semicolon-delimited list of file extensions. For example, enter
.mdb;.url
You might have to restart the computer or at least Outlook
