I have a Barracude Spam Firewall 300, and its currently blocking Office 2007 file extensions; pptx, xlsx, docx.  I've looked under the Attachment Filtering and it asks for file extensions that I want to block.  The above extensions are not in this list.  Any ideas?

In the attachment filtering add remove the zip filter and add .zip

Office 2007's new files formats are recognized as zip or archive files so they get flagged as a zip file.

When you add .zip this will specifically tell it to look for files with that specific extension.
