This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi everybody,

we are currently suffering a lot of Spam-Mail.

Most of those Mails are delivering a .zip Attachment containing malicious files with .pdf.exe - Format (somne are .docx.exe, .xlsx.exe, you get it).

I tried to block the execution of those Files by using some SEP Rulesets, but I couldn't figure out how to do this. Can you help me with this? We are using SEP 12.1 RU1

(BTW: I agree that this should be handled on the Mailserver in the first place.....)

Thanks in advance
