Hello.

 

You could use 4 individual “is not” tests.  One “is not in” test would be easier, however.

 

The only problem is if the sender includes 2 (or more) attachments, one which should pass and one which should fail.

Subject: Reversing logic on Mail Rules

 


Hi
I am currently using the free version of Niversoft's Find Attachments v1.1.6a to add headers to all inbound messages.
I have an associated agent that drops any messages that have an identified .exe attachment:

<Header Field> is <X-AttachExt.exe>
<Reject with> 'This server does not accept .exe attached files'

I have now been asked to drop all messages that contain an attachment that isn't any of '.doc, .xls, .pdf, .txt'
I am trying to get my head around the logic.
My understanding of rules is that each test is processed 'line by line' independent of any earlier test and if a test returns false, the rule is then exited with no further action in that context; so I can't 'OR' tests.
I would be grateful of suggestions on how to program a set of rules to achieve the desired result.
Regards
Quinton
