Filtering files


Applies to: Forefront Security for Exchange Server

Topic Last Modified: 2007-07-19

The Forefront Security for Exchange Server file filter feature gives administrators the ability to search for attachments with a specific name, type, extension, and size within an e-mail message. If it finds a match, the file filter can be configured to perform actions on the attachment such as delete, quarantine, notify, and report the detected file. The file filter offers a flexible means to detect file attachments within e-mail messages and other Outlook items, including Tasks and Schedules (such as meetings and appointments).
