    My client gets this message:

    Small Business Server has removed potentially unsafe e-mail attachment(s)
    from this message:
    Address List.mdb
    Address List data.mdb


    Because computer viruses are commonly spread through files attached to
    e-mail messages,
    certain types of files will not be delivered to your mailbox. For more
    information,
    contact the person responsible for your network.

    The unsafe attachments option is there when you run CIECW, but how do i
    allow through attachments we KNOW are safe, even manually?

    Thanks,
    Jamie

  2. Hi Jamie,

    Thank you for posting in the SBS newsgroup. I am glad to see you again.

    According to your description, I understand that you would like to find the
    SBS removed the email attachments, and allow them through. If I have
    misunderstood your concern, please don't hesitate to let me know.

    Where do we find the SBS removed the email attachments? The Folder location
    can be specified when we are running the CEICW, in the "Remove E-mail
    Attachments" page, you can enable the "Save removed e-mail attachments in a
    folder" option and specify a folder to save these attachments.

    How do we manually allow the attachments which we know are safe go through
    the SBS Server? Please perform the below steps:

    1. Open Start, click Run, type %sbsprogramdir%\Networking in the Open box,
    and then press ENTER.

    2. In the dialog box, find the SecAttsConfig.xml file, right-click the
    file and select Edit.

    3. If you would like to enable the "Save removed e-mail attachments in a
    folder" option and specify a folder to save these attachments. Find the
    <SaveToFile Enabled="False" Location="" /> sentence, change it to
    <SaveToFile Enabled="True" Location="Destination path" />.
    For example, we can type c:\attachments at the Destination path.

    4. Find the <Attachment Enabled="True" Extension="mdb"
    Description="Microsoft Access program" /> sentence, change it to
    <Attachment Enabled="False" Extension="mdb" Description="Microsoft Access
    program" />.

    5. Click File in the menu, and then click Save to save the change to the
    SecAttsConfig.xml file.

    I am appreciated your time and cooperation. If anything is unclear, please
    feel free to let me know. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

    Best regards,
