Groupwise won’t send MS Office documentsLocked
This is weird. A friend of mine has a Groupwise 5.5 email server that will not send MS Office files. I know nothing about Novell Groupwise stuff, so I thought I’d pass on the puzzle. Check it out if you have a minute!
He can’t send any doc, xls, or ppt files through the server. Note that the filename is irrelevant. i.e., if you rename worddocument.doc to worddocument.jpg, it still will not go through.
Any other files (eg. zip files, jpg )will go through regardless of name. i.e., ifyou rename picture.jpg to picture.doc, it goes through fine. If you zip worddocument.doc into worddoczipped.zip, it goes just fine, too!
The previous email server (not sure what brand) did not have this problem.
It appears as though the server is actually scanning the content of the file & blocking MS Office files. Any thoughts at all?
Thanks for any response!
