EMAIL - Blocked File Types

Blocking of Attachments With Certain File Types (Student and Employee Email)

Employee exchange email - Email attachment file types currently being blocked on Barracuda spam filters are:

In each case below, files are only blocked if they are password protected.

.zip
.rar
.pdf
Office file types (.doc(x), .xlsx, .ppt(x), etc.) - full list of Office file types found here.

Student Zimbra Email - Email attachment file types currently being blocked on SpamTitan spam filters are:

.bat              .rar
.cmd            .scr
.com            .vb
.dll               .vbe
.exe             .vbs
.jar              .wsf   
.js                .zip / .zipx 
.lib

 

If someone legitimately needs to send a .zip file, there are two workarounds: unzip the file and send the items individually (not in a .zip) OR change the file extension to something like .piz. The recipient can then rename the file to .zip and open as normal.
