All,

Some of our customers have requested (against our better judgment) that the "Banned Attachments" are not "NULLed" and are actually quarantined.  So ... to help protect them from themselves I have made a modification to our ListSpam page to at least flag the message as potentially dangerous.  In our ListSpam page, we list the RejectDetails and modify the color and add text as follows:

<% strLine = rs("RejectDetails")
    If InStr (strLine,"prohibited attachment") > 0 Then %>
        <td><font face="Arial" size="1" color = "red">Virus WARNING!&nbsp;<%=Server.HTMLEncode(rs("RejectDetails"))%></font></td>
<% Else %>
        <td><font face="Arial" size="1"><%=Server.HTMLEncode(rs("RejectDetails"))%></font></td>
<% End if %>

Of course, if they elect to send it, our virus scanner kills it anyway.
 
Regards,
 
Dan S.

All,
 
Yet a more obvious way of "Flagging" banned attachments is to modify the listing in ListSpam for the EmailFrom field as follows:
 
   <% strLine = rs("RejectDetails")
   If InStr (strLine,"prohibited attachment") > 0 Then %>
      <font face="Arial" size="2" color = "red"><Strong>Possible Virus!&nbsp;</Strong></font>
   <% End if %>
   <font face="Arial" size="1"><% If rs("EmailFrom") <> "" Then %><%=Server.HTMLEncode(rs("EmailFrom"))%>
      <% Else Response.Write("&nbsp;") %>
   <% End if %></font></td>
 
BTW, The last "if" bit is only included to force my borders on my table even if the from address is blank.
 
Regards,
