Removed Email Attachments

Hello everyone!

I have an SBS2003 server that has a folder D:\REmoved Email Attachements. I believe Exchange was set up to remove certain types of attachments to this folder using the wizard. I will be implementing SMSME 5.0 and would like Exchange to stop removing email attachments. How can I accomplish this?

It's part of the 'Configure e-mail and internet connection wizard' fifth or so screen: 'remove e-mail attachments' uncheck the Enable .. option.  
I found the wizard under: Server Management - internet and e-mail - configure firewall.

I don't havea "configure firewall" option under "Internet and Email". BTW, this isn't a fresh install. THis server has been running for sometime.

To start the Configure E-mail and Internet Connection Wizard on the computer running Windows Small Business Server 2003:

Click Start and then click Server Management.
In the console tree, click Internet and E-mail.
In the details pane, click Connect to the Internet.

It's the CEICW for short, and the most important wizard that exists on your SBS.  For more information about it, please see http://sbsurl.com/ceicw

The option to remove email attachments is the very last screen of the wizard.  The wizard is also commonly linked as "Connect to the Internet".
