    just to make sure everyone understands what i'm tryign to achieve, i have two basic types of users in the company, the first type cant receive most attachments types, the other users are higher ups in the company and they have a bit more freedom to recieve email.

    example, the higher ups can recieve .pps (powerpoint) files, the other users cant. This needs to be done in a system administrator level so that users cant just disable the filters from their side and also its much easier to apply rules to a group of users at once instead of doing it on a one-by-one basis

    Please vote for Bug 18546 - Block Attachment per user and update with additional requirements as you deem necessary.

    Done. But I guess that means there is no way to do it right? at least not from the zimbra side of things...

    Hi, and TIA,

    I'm still trying to figure out a way to do this... at this point i'm looking at other tools to make this work, amavis was sugested, but i cant find much info on how to achieve this. It was also sugested that i use another mail server as a filter, well thats not good in any way for me, it has to be something in the same server as zimbra.

    can anyone suggest anything other than dumping zimbra and going back to the windows world?

    If your users check their mail by the web interface, you can block attachments in the COS. There's a radio button for "Disable attachment viewing from web mail UI".

    This is possible to do with Zimbra, more to the point Postfix and Amavisd-New. It would take quite a bit of work by setting up multiple mail paths in Postfix using regex and the defining policy banks in Amavisd.

    Amavisd-new :: Policy Banks

    Yes Jbrabander is correct You could setup two CoS one for power users and the other for everyone else. The downside is that it is either TRUE or FALSE. You would not be able to say power users could view PPS and everbody else cannot.

    most users use thunderbird and outlook, so webUI doesnt help much but its an option. What i'm affraid of at this point is doing some changes in the backgroud via cli, that could perhaps conflict with anything i change see in the admin console, creating a bigger problem.

    I've been reading up on Kyapanel integration, its a mess, so i have to look elsewhere...

    Right now some sort of UI would be awesome...

    As that's still the status you can assume that it hasn't been implemented yet.
