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.
