Company email - Which file types to block

Q: Company email - Which file types to block

Our email scanning is run by an external company. It has been working up to a point, but due to the large amount of spam getting through they are upgrading this service. As part of this upgrade, I have been given a list of attachment file types and asked which I want them to block and which to allow.

Half of these I am pretty sure about, but I need some guidance on what some of the others are and whether they are a genuine security threat.

Here's what I have left...

Binary - encrypted

Binary - not protected

LZH compressed archive (if we allow .zip, any reason not to allow these?)

Binhex

Microsoft Compress

TNEF

Possible install shield

PEM - Privacy enhanced mail (we are allowing PGP, so why not these?)

ARJ (see LZH comment)

TAR

CMP

GZP

UUE

Apple double resource fork

Apple single

CDA

DCX

Embedded OLE Object

Embedded OLE Package

JTD

Lotus 123

MS Project - MPP

Pattern matched

XML

Win32 Unknown Executable

DWG

PPM

WMF

PCX

PKCS message

Then, is there any reason to allow any of these scripts in a business email message...

Javascript, JavascriptEncoded, Unknown Script, VBScript, VBScriptEncoded

Preferred Solution: Company email - Which file types to block

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

What does this mean?

Usually, if it is a virus it will tell me that my ISP already deleted the msg and/or attachment, and it tells me that it was a virus.

I have seen this msg before from my ISP & MailWasher. What other types of files will not be accepted my gateway??
 

A:email file types not accepted by gateway

cwolfe98,

Your gateway may be blocking pif files because they often contain a virus. A pif file is a PROGRAM INFORMATION FILE that tells windows how to run a non windows program. Old DOS games etc... often require a pif file to run. Windows also uses pif files to get into DOS boxes for DOS promts etc... Not a whole lot of reasons to be sending pif files back and forth over email.

Yesterday, I did a scan of my network with WireShark 3.2.6  Scan was done on my hardwired Ethernet connection. I am somewhat new to advanced wireshark and I do not know everything there is to know but I am in the process of learning.
While looking at the results of a short scan I saw some unsettling IP Addresses that were appearing on my network. I do a lot of schoolwork online and I need to setup Windows 10 Professional's Firewall to block this IP Address or possibly even a range of

Within the last 48 hours, 3 customers and 1 employee of our company have received emails that mimic our E-commerce transaction receipt email very closely. The email is off very slightly but there's an attachment - extension ending is .MHT. The only thing these 4 individuals have in common that I know of is our company.
 
Has anyone seen this sort of email behavior recently and any ideas where to dig to root it out? I'm quite sure it's either malware, ransomware, or a phishing attempt.

This is some software we have been looking for, not sure if i am even looking in the correct place or calling it what it is. We have 12 sales people and everyone has there own email. We have an info and and a sales address as well.

What we are wondering, if there is a package that sends all mail into a queue or list and waits for someone to take responsibility for the email and handles it. If all mail would go into one queue waiting for someone to take it. Once someone decided to work on that specific email, it would then be removed from the queue so someone else wouldn't also start working on it. Once someone took the email, that job would be assigned to that person. Presently we have 3-4 people looking at the sales and info emails but have to check with each other to make sure someone is handling it and not more than one person is.

Does anyone know of any software that might handle this, or if I am explaining it clearly

Thanks

I'm sure there's a way to do this, but it's out of my realm of digging in windows.

What I need essentially is a Symbolic Folder that will scan a set directory and only return specific file types.

For example, I have five folders with .jpgs, .psds, and .txt.

What I would like is to create a folder that when opened will only show me .txt files from those directories.

Is there a program, or service that will allow me to do this?

A:Symbolic File Folder with Specified File Types?

This is quite easy to do with Windows Search.

This example is how to create a shortcut to all images on chosen folder (location), inclusive all its subfolders:Open the location you want to use as root. In this example I'll use Libraries
Type to search field kind:image, click Save Search:
.

.
Name the search as you want to, click Save:
.

.
Now when you open the folder %USERPROFILE%\Searches, you'll find shortcuts to all your predefined searches:
.
Using the same method you can create shortcuts to almost anything. Some search criteria examples:ext:pdf = all PDF-files (extension .pdf)
ext:jpg = all JPG-files (extension .jpg)
datemodified:‎01/‎09/‎2010 .. ‎31/‎10/‎2010 = all files modified between 1st of September 2010 and 31st of October 2010 (notice the date should be in default format used by the current Windows user account)
kind:music = all music files

When I tried changing the icon of 'File Folder' in 'Folder Options' --> 'File
Types' , by mistake I made 'find' in 'Action' list ('Advanced' button) the
default. Now I am unable to remove it. So whenever I try double clicking a
folder, a search window appears.

Now I don't want anything in the list to be made default. System does not
allow me to do so.

What I tried to do and how it failed?
1. I tried adding a new action item with the application as 'explorer.exe'
and made it the default. After this whenever I double click a folder it opens
in a new window. Note that the Browse folder settings in General tab of
'Folder Options' is still 'Open folders in the same window'

2. There is a checkbox in 'Advanced' settings for 'File Folder' with label
'Browse in same window'. This option is unchecked and the best part is, this
is disabled.

3. Even file folder is not present in file types..
How do I go back to my old settings where in no item in Action list is set
as default?
 

A:file folder disappeared from file types

I am using the free AOL email and I want to block email coming from a certain individual. I posted the question on Google and they said:

"1. In the upper right, below your Username, click Options and then click Mail Settings.
2. In the left panel, click Spam Settings.
3. To the right of 'Sender Filter', click the drop-down menu and select Block mail from addresses I specify.

4. In the Enter username or email address box, type the email address or domain name that you wish to block and then click the + button to add the email address or domain name to the list.
Note: A domain is the part of the email address after the @ symbol. For example, if the email address is [email protected], then aol.com is the domain.
5. At the bottom, click Save Settings.
All done. No more unwanted mail!"

I tried this and all it does is transfer the incoming message to my spam folder. I don't want to receive the message at all. Does anyone know if there is some way that I can block mail from a sender so that I don't receive it at all?

What are some common file types that i dont need?
 

A:here! FiLe TyPeS**

This is a very broad question - it rather depends upon what you have on your PC and why you need to make room more space on you drive (I'm assuming that is what you need to do).

All .tmp (Tempory) files can usually be deleted safely, and some files for unused sound schemes, desktop themes and some font files may be deleted, but, and this is a very big BUT, you have to be sure the files, particularly text files, are not being used by an application or file you want to use. For instance deleting the basic Windows fonts would prove disastrous in the short term.

To identify what file extensions belong where you could take a look at this comprehensive site first:

http://filext.com/

But perhaps before proceeding further you could give a bit more depth to your question. For instance, there may be better ways to free up space on your harddrive that we could advise, if that is what you are trying to do.

Someone that was working with my computer and looking at my pixs somehow changed the file type that opened them to a .pvm file and now I can't open them at all. I have tried changing the programs that open them and sometimes it tells me it is empty, but it still shows that there is something in the file...such as 5.3 kb. Can anyone help me or is it a lost cause and my pixs are gone?

Thanks

Can anyone please help before I go crazy, When I try to display an IMG file on a forum I am unable to do so, I have done it a hundred times before but I must have changed some setting or deleted something, the message I am getting from the forum on which I post after copying the IMG from Photobucket or Mediafire is AN INVALID FILE, probably part of the same problem when I now try to view a PPS file it opens Windows Media window and I have to open it from there by choosing P.P Viewer to open
I am 79 years of age and would really appreciate any advice you can give
Thank You
Fred

Does anyone know if this is possible?? I would like to 'share' a Quickbooks 2008 Premier company file through an online file service. We have 4 users using quickbooks at the main office 'sharing' the company file from 1 PC. We have a warehouse about a mile away that we need to get access to the QB file. If I move the company file to some sort of online file storage place would everyone still be able to use it. I am unsure because I know the new version of QB has the database manager program that has to run on the PC that hosts the company file. Anyone do anything like this??

Thanks

A while back I played with the File/transfer wizard and I think it put my entire quickbooks account into a folder and I unknowingly deleted it. Any chance I could find it or is it something I should use a local computer specialist for? I don't know if it's a coincidence but thereafter, I could no longer use the "yellow star" button on the Kijiji web site to save items to My Kijiji's "watchlist".

If my HJT Logfile needs therapy, please let me know.

Thanks,
Alan
