Exchange 5.5

By daniel ·
We recently blocked certain attachment extensions (.exe, .vbs, etc.) from being delivered to our Outlook 97 clients, and wanted to know if these blocked attachments, although they are not delivered to our employees, are put somewhere in Exchange. For example, if an employee states they needed an executable attachment to be delivered through Exchange, the system administrator can retrieve that file from that location on the Exchange Server and deliver it to the employee.

In addition, is there a way to block all attachments to certain Exchange 5.5 users?

Thanks,
Dan

You must be using a 3rd party tool.

Out of the box Exchange 5.5 does not provide a means of blocking attachments (domains, email addresses and IPs yes).

Outlook 98 and Outlook 2000 with the security SP installed will prevent the viewing of these attachments. Outlook XP right out of the box also prevent the viewing of these attachments - these can be controlled under the Corporate/Workgroup environment with the Security Public Folder in place.

For more info on the 98/2000 security update search Microsoft Web for the 98/2000 Email Security Update White Paper. For a copy of the folder template search MS web for the ADMPACK.EXE file
