Hi,

Sorry if this is a duplicate post. I found a very similiar post (ID: 24043951) to my problem but the accepted answer is not suitable for me. The answer to post ID 24043951 is to restrict "sites" rather than files or file access.
I want users to access google, hotmail etc. and read and reply to their emails. I just want to restrict them not to attach any files to their internet emails from their PCs.
Is there a way for this, especially by any means of GPOs?

The browsers are IE 7.0
The clients PCs are mostly Vista Business Edition  and some Windows XPs.
The users are in a W2k3 AD environment.

Thanks in advance

I believe that in order to do this you'd need to set up a proxy server such as Squid for LINUX or ISA 2004+ for Microsoft.  Otherwise, all you can do is block access to the site or to the app.

Thanks zelron22. This is an option already, but I am firstly in search of a solution without modifying  the environment, if possible. On the other hand, I feel less hopeful as time passes..

Any more comments?

Not the answer I want, but I think this is the only solution. We are working on a proxy/filtering solution now.
