Hi everyone,

Does anyone really know what the best practices are in dealing with
password-protected attachments received via email? I'm referring to the email
content filtering level, not the user level.

We've always blocked them and manually reviewed/released. But I'm curious to
know what other companies do and/or what the best practices are. Ive tried
searching the net to no avail.

Do most companies block them? Do they just let them through? Do they get
manually reviewed/released?

Thanks for any info you may have
