Sigh... Sounds like an extreme measure to me. I've mostly been happy with attachments if they are real demonstrations of a problem. I guess blocking all zipped attachments seems draconian to me too. Zipping a file that might get misinterpreted by mail application always seemed a smart thing to do.

Sorry if I've caused you problems when I occasionally felt an attachment would be helpful.

Good Luck,
