Hi ,

I would appreciate any solution for the following requirement:

Internal Communication ( Mails exchanged within the company) - Attachments to be disabled on outlook
External Communication ( Mails exchanged between the company and external Parties) - Attachments to be enabled

Is there any way for achieving this.

Thanks in advance.

Regards

As far as I know, it is not possible.  In other projects in the past, I developed a simple plugin for outlook which made this.

Some firewalls have this feature too.

Hi,

this can be achived via transport rules.
Take a look at picture in attachment, which was created in Exchange 2013.

Simple configure rule to look for any attachment send between internal users, and then block it.. and if you want, send information to sender, so that they know what is going on :)

PS: I have set to block attachments that have 0Kb or more..to basically all attachments are blocked.

Regards,
Ivan.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Actually it is quite easy using mail flow rules. Block messages to internal users with an attachment greater than 0 bytes.  An informational message is useful
