Mail filters at Universities and large institutions can be smarter than
that. It is no big thing for a server to examine the content of
attachments, and not difficult to look inside a zip file... nor to
determine that a .doc is actually an executable... and these folks need
to do just that. After all, an executable with a .doc extension has a
term - trojan. Anyone doing that is setting themselves up to be
filtered, rather than achieving the intended goal. A trojan is a
trojan, friendly or not. I wouldn't recommend it, or you could also
find yourself blacklisted.
Better to provide them a download link.
