Hi

Another question being asked by our Security team :) Our mail topology is like this:

Exchange 2007 mailbox svr > Exchange 2007 Hub Transport > SMTP Gateway (Trend) > INTERNET

Is it possible to configure Hub Transports to block certain attachments without the Anti-Spam extra? I know this can be done on the Edge, but we don't use that.

Any Exchange aware Anti-virus solution can be used to block specific attachments

It can't be done effectively on the HUB server the attachment filter is a Edge role feature

rr1968 is right you can do a transport rule to block but it will work only based on names, if the file is a .exe but was renamed to .ex_ for example this rule will not detect it nor it will if it was zipped

The attachment filtering of Edge has all the above features

Is the transport rule option only for Exchange 2010?
