From Help:

"Windows Live Hotmail doesn't support the following file types. Your
operating system, firewall, or other software may also cause
additional file types to be blocked.

..ade .adp .app .asp .bas .bat .cer .chm .cmd .com .cpl .crt .csh
..exe .fxp .hlp .hta .inf .ins .isp .its .js .jse .ksh .lnk .mad .maf
..mag .mam .maq .mar .mas .mat .mau .mav .maw .mda .mdb .mde .mdt
..mdw .mdz .msc .msi .msp .mst .ops .pcd .pif .prf .prg .pst .reg
..scf .scr .sct .shb .shs .tmp .url .vb .vbe .vbs .vsmacros .vss .vst
..vsw .ws .wsc .wsf .wsh

If it's one of these, you'll have to ask the sender either to zip
the files before sending, or possibly just change the extension to
..txt.

Or use a mail provider with fewer restrictions. :-)

Here's a workaround to use until you solve it:

Pretend to forward the message but don't send it.
From the menu at the top open 'File-->Save attachments...'

It works!
