Restrict e-mail attachments

By Rabbit_Runner ·
Hi,
I have done some searching in TechNet and on the Internet, but have not been able to find the answer to my question.

How does one restrict or prohibit e-mail attachments? We are using an Win NT 4.0 server running Exchnage 5.5

Is there some setting in the exchange administrator, or does one need a 3rd party utility? I have searched for the answer but did not discover it.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

You can restrict any attachment in Exchange Server 5.5, but you can restrict the size of the attachment.

A patch for Microsoft Outlook 2000 can handle attachment file, it actually block the attachment by their file tyep.

Visit this microsoft site for more detail:

Just would like to add on. Yes, indeed you cant restict the attachment. You can do it with 3rd party tools.

I will recommend you to use Norton Antivirus for Exchange. You can block any attachment you want.

Cheers!

Thanks for the information. We are currently using InoculateIT for our anti-virus software and are not likely to be changing any time soon. do you have any other options? Thanks
