Hi,

Just started playing yesterday with this nice product.

But according to me there is something wrong with this setting:

Block attachment list (remove attachments with this type).
The attachment is indeed removed and replaced by some text. BUT The sender also gets a warning/message that the mail could not be deliverd.

PLease explain...

hmm is it correct that "block" means indeed that the mail is NOT accepted,BUT will be send to the receipient? [/edit]

Regards,
Johan

This is intentional, meant to inform the sender that his message was not received completely.

You can change this behaviour. We did not think that anyone would want it otherwise, so this setting is not visible in the attachment filter setup wizard, you have to edit the configuration file nospamtoday.cf with a text editor instead.

Find the attachment filter config section in the config file, and add the following line to this section:

BlockListPolicy="accept/deliver"

The default setting is "reject/deliver".

No, Paessler and byteplant are different companies.
Paessler is just a reseller for byteplant products.

It would be very helpful if you had an additional policy for blocked Html . So often the reject/deliver comes into force for an "HTML attachment that is only a copy of the email text". The mail is delivered but the sender gets an annoying and inaccurate delivery failure report. We need an: "Attachment blocked, but email delivered report instead"
