Exclude suspicious attachments from filtering

If you want to allow certain attachments that would otherwise be identified as suspicious and blocked, you can exclude them from content filtering as follows.

  1. Click Configuration > Transport (SMTP) Scanning Policy > Content. On the Content filtering screen, in the On suspicious attachment bar, click Define. In the Suspicious attachment type dialog box, click the Excluded attachment names tab.
  2. To add or remove an attachment, or to restore default settings:
    • Click Add and enter an attachment name that you want to exclude from filtering. You can use the wildcards '*' and '?', for example *.pdf or abcd.*
    • Click Remove to remove a highlighted attachment name.
    • Click Restore defaults to restore default settings.
  3. Click OK to save your changes, and return to the Content filtering screen.
    Note From the Manage changes menu, click Save changes to save your configuration.
