Our mail gateway at Ericsson is configured to remove attachments from emails - a bunch of various files; .bat, .exe, .scr and so on. It is very annoying since there are a lot of interesting posts in this forum with attachments. I believe that most viruses would be caught anyway without these removals, and that batch-files should be opened at own risk.</SPAN></FONT></DIV><DIV><FONT face=Arial color=#0000ff size=2><SPAN class=244033410-19072002></SPAN></FONT> </DIV><DIV><FONT face=Arial color=#0000ff size=2><SPAN class=244033410-19072002> I've sent a complaint to our IS/IT security team complaining about this. We have, as you seem too, NAV-tools scanning servers, clients and MS Exchange.
