Is there anyway that when a client gets an email with a video attachment they are not allowed to open it but it will ask them where do you want it downloaded to.  The bottom line is I do not want them running the video from the exchange server but rather it pushes it down to there computer instead.  Thanks!

"The bottom line is I do not want them running the video from the exchange server but rather it pushes it down to there computer instead."

All they are doing is accessing an attachment which is part of their mailbox - if you do not like this have them use Outlook in offline mode - this way they would download emails locally in OST format and would not bug Exchange with open RPC calls.

Thanks Exchange Geek!  I was looking for some kind of rule that could be implemented with in ESM or something like that.  I guess I am looking at upgrading server and software to improve perfomance.  Thanks Though!

Ok i research'd a bit (it took some time for sure) and yes what you want can be achieved - but yes it does require you to read few articles since this talks about Level1 attachment series and Level2 attachment series.

I know it sounds prima-facie confusing - however, take a deep breath and trust me this is the solution you are looking for. Here is a brief look which exited me.

"It provides a COM add-in for Outlook. When you go to Tools | Options, you see an additional tab that lets you select particular (or all, if you really need to!) Level 1 file types and add them to the list of Level 2.
Level 1 file types are completely blocked by Outlook Level2 file types are those that can be saved to the disk"

"Outlook recognizes two levels of attachmentsLevel 1 attachments are blocked altogether, but a user can save a Level 2 attachment to disk and open it."
