Sonicwall Firewall stripping attachments out as text
Posted on 2013-11-05
I had our eternally hosted website updated to create a form where people can send in their resumes. There is an option for them to attach a word file or pdf etc.
When the web company sends the resume to our email account the attachment comes in as text. I know it is the sonicwall firewall doing this because we have a barracuda spam filter afterwards and it shows the attachment as text aswell.
I had them direct the form to my personal email account and the attachment came in as an attchemnt. We tried with different file types and it made no difference. Here is what the email looks like. I truncated it somewhat as the jibberrish text goes on for a while.
What could be causing this in my sonicwall. We are using a NSA3500. Attachments coming in via regular methods are of course ok. Its is just from this form that the web guys built.
