Whole message quarantined

I am used to seeing attachments quarantined of course, but this one is new to 

The original e-mail attachment "the entire message"
is on the list of unacceptable attachments for this site and has been
replaced by this warning message.

This message consisted of some text with a large PDF attachment.  MS didn't 
like the filename of the attachment - double file type - but why remove the 
message text as well?

More importantly, how can I recover the attachment?  It seems to be in TNEF 
format (yuk).  I managed to get the message part back by dropping the entire 
file onto Outlook Express.  Surprisingly this restored the message text, but 
the attached data was ignored.

This attachment is 7MB and urgently required, so it would be nice not to have 
to have it resent.
