Whitelisting specifc attachments from specific senders
I have moved to whitelisting attachments. What would be useful is to add to the exceptions attachments handling is the ability to whitelist say .zip files from a specific sender instead of just simply whitelisting sender which allows all attachments including dangerous virus attachments. While we trust the sender, obviously they may get infected with a virus and then infect us if the AV does not pick it up. Thank you.
Thank you for following up with the additional information. Adding email/attachment pairs to exclude from the attachment restrictions will be considered for future versions.
Thanks again for the idea and for following up.
Thank you. Much appreciated. Robert
I probably should not have used zip files as an example as I am aware of the feature you mentioned. What I am actually talking about is the following kind of scenario:
We might whitelist the following attachments:
So basically nobody can send a .doc file (which could contain a macro) and nobody can send a .docm file which could contain a macro. But maybe the council needs to send macro documents to schools as part of the council's job.
I want to whitelist the council to be able to send .docm documents but I don't want the council to be able to send other blacklisted attachments which might happen if their computers get infected with a virus.
I would like to be able to whitelist a sender to send a specific filetype such as .docm file type that is not in the whitelist without effectively whitelisting all attachments from that sender!
Hope that makes sense.
