Attached File Extensions that are Currently Blocked in E-mail
Certain file extension types that are commonly known to be used for malicious e-mail virus code execution are blocked at the Saint Mary's College e-mail server. You will not be able to transmit messages that contain attached files with these extensions through our system. The current list of blocked extensions are as follows:
.zip, .pif, .com, .exe, .vbs, .bat, .scr, .lnk, .cmd, .dll, .ocx, .wsh, .hta, .cpl
We are sorry for any inconvenience this security measure may cause you, but we must take certain precautions to reduce the vulnerability of users on the Saint Mary's network to virus and worm infection. However, we can suggest a work-around so that legitimate files of these types can be transmitted.
If you have not already done so, save the file to your local hard drive. Rename the file so that the extension is a dummy -- you might for instance want to use your initials. For example, if you were attaching a file called "photos.zip", you might rename it "photos.jqp"(if your name were John Q. Public); then you would make note of the extension substitution (including what the extension should be) in the message, so that the receiver can download and save the attached file, change the extension back to the proper type, and then open it.
