[Question] RE: sending warning message

Hello Mark,

That is a good question indeed. 
    - First option is definitely not desired. 
    - Second option looks okay but I guess the other way (From the Internet to my company) will be affected as well. I mean it will affect my scenario #2.
    - Third option means dropping the email without any notification?

It is a good question but very hard to determine. Let me think about it. Thanks a lot.

What I want to achieve is sending the message to the sender only because it's a sender's fault (e.g. double extension filename). So, it's a bit difficult to explain with my limited English but for example, when a company user sends an email with double extension filename attachment, then:

What do you want the recipient to get?

1) A message as sent by the sender with no alteration.
2) A message with the attachment removed with no indication or explanation of that
3) Nothing at all.

I'm not really sure if any of those options can be accomplished. My previous suggestion to use a Scan Messages rule set to not scan outbound mail will accomplish 1), but won't notify the sender.

In any case, once you clarify what you want the recipient to receive if anything, I'll think about ways to accomplish it.
