Global Settings to Block Mail Attachments
The Attachments tab can be configured with global rules for handling attachments to an email message. You can also set rules by COS and for individual accounts. When attachment settings are configured in Global Settings, the global rule takes precedence over COS and Account settings.
The attachment settings are as follows:
*
Attachments cannot be viewed regardless of COS. Users cannot view any attachments. This global setting can be set to prevent a virus outbreak from attachments, as no mail attachments can be opened.
*
Attachments are viewed according to COS. This global settings states the COS sets the rules for how email attachments are viewed.
You can also reject messages with certain types of files attached. You select which file types are unauthorized from the Common extensions list. You can also add other extension types to the list. Messages with those type of files attached are rejected. By default the recipient and the sender are notified that the message was blocked. If you do not want to send a notification to the recipient when messages are blocked, you can disable this option from the Global Settings>Attachments tab.
