Mail Protection: Attachment Stripping
currently, there are several "action" options in the smtp anti-malware section: warn, blackhole, quarantine, and reject.
We should have a "remove attachment" option which means the unwanted (infected or dangerous) attachment is stripped off the mail, but the rest of the mail is forwarded to the recipient.
Two things are achieved with this: the recipient is informed immediately about the mail (he doesn´t have to wait for the next quarantine report). And he can see that a mail from a possibily importand business contact has been blocked and see at least the "uncritical" content
This very good idea is more than 5 years old.
How many votes does it need to be realized?
Would be a important feature
It would be great to have this!
Currently we use Symantec Brightmail Gateway where this feature is available.
Important is, that it doesn't matter, which file extension the attachment has (e.g. virus.exe renamed to virus.abc).
Password protected attachments as zip-files should be strppped too.
Good idea. We had customer they ask this feature too.
Do a comment to Subject that attachment had been stripped.
no its time to do this change
agree, would be useful to have a notification email sent to the sender to say that the attachment had been stripped.
good idea - good for practical
