Exemptions from Attachment Filter on Edge Transport
Posted on 2009-04-21
Does anyone know if it is possible to exempt recipients from any of the Exchange Edge Transport anti-spam rules? Specifically, the Attachment Filter rule?
We have a couple of internal system mailboxes which need to be able to receive .exe and other attachments from Internet sources. However there seems to be no way of allowing this, short of disabling the Attachment Filter rule entirely. I'd rather not do that, but as far as I can tell, this is the only way. I know you can exempt connectors, but this is no use to us.
Unless I'm being thick, this seems to be a serious shortcoming of the Edge Transport role. I'd settle for being able to forward blocked email to a mailbox (as with the Content Filtering role), but it seems you can't even do that.
