The Get-AttachmentFilterEntry cmdlet enables an e-mail administrator to view the list of attachment filter entries that are configured on a computer that has the Edge Transport server role installed.


get-attachmentfilterentry [-Identity <String>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>]

The Attachment Filter agent can block attachments from entering the Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 organization based on the content type and the file name of the attachment. The configuration of the Attachment Filtering agent determines how attachments are processed.

To run the Get-AttachmentFilterEntry cmdlet on a computer that has the Edge Transport server role installed, you must log on by using an account that is a member of the local Administrators group on that computer.

For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Exchange 2007, see Permission Considerations.
