CLSID in filenames

I manage a shared system for hundreds of clients, anyone sending crappy attachment names like this gets them rejected.  Simply email them back telling them what to do.

Train your client base and people who email your client base to make your life easier.

I wouldn't consider trying to modify rules for this I would tell them to give the attachment a sensible name.

Since I handle mail for multiple clients I can't take it upon me to
educate even those users and certainly not all sending to them. :)

I was more interested in if the default rule is poorly constructed and
prone to false alerts.
