Avoid Gmail addresses for component order

Some file types are blocked by Gmail:

As a security measure to prevent potential viruses, Gmail doesn't allow you to send or receive executable files (such as files ending in .exe) that could contain damaging executable code. In addition, Gmail does not allow you to send or receive files that are corrupted.
Which file types can I not send or receive?

"ade", "adp", "bat", "chm", "cmd", "com", "cpl", "exe",
"hta", "ins", "isp", "jse", "lib", "mde", "msc", "msp",
"mst", "pif", "scr", "sct", "shb", "sys", "vb", "vbe",
"vbs", "vxd", "wsc", "wsf", "wsh"

Gmail won't accept these types of files even if they are sent in a zipped (.zip, .tar, .tgz, .taz, .z, .gz) format. If this type of message is sent to your Gmail address, it is bounced back to the sender automatically.

Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1 Downloads for Windows 7 RC, Vista SP2 and XP SP3

Microsoft has started giving the public a taste of the next generation of its development platform and tools. In this regard, the Redmond company made available for download the first Beta builds of .NET Framework 4.0 and Visual Studio 2010.
