POP3-Proxy: Filenames

To put limits on file names for incoming email attachments, you can use the Filenames ruleset in a POP3-Server proxy action. To include files in compressed attachments such as ZIP archives, make sure to enable Gateway AntiVirus. For more information, see About Gateway AntiVirus.

To put limits on file names for outgoing email attachments, configure rules in the POP3-Client proxy action. You can add, delete, or modify rules.

  1. In the POP3 proxy action configuration, select Attachments > Filenames.
