Email Protection: Filtering blocked Attachments

The Email Protection is forwarding mails with blocked attachments (filetype or mime type) directly to the quarantine and the user gets only max. two quarantine-mails/information about this blocked mails. This could be a problem with the delay in (for example) judgment ares or court of justices. How about filtering out the blocked attachments in a separate quarantine mail and forwarding the rest of the mail, including allowed attachments to the mailserver/user? The user could be informed about a blocked attachment in the quarantine. So we separate the area of blocked antivirus mails with blocked attachments.

        Forefront Protection for Exchange Server is a Product which does exactly what you describe! We still use the FPfE instead of the UTM Features because ist confusing for the Users when the Mails arrive delayed. FPfE takes the Attachment and replaces it with a .txt file so the User recieves the Mail with the Information that the Mail had filtered Content. The Users can read the Text of the Mail. And we can Restore the Blocked Content if needed.
