Q. Does ProtectLink Gateway Email Protection scan and filter encrypted emails and password-protected files?

A.

  • The answer is No.
  • ProtectLink Gateway Email Protection creates log entries for encrypted emails.
  • It inserts the "Unable to Scan" stamp to emails with password-protected attachments.

Note: ProtectLink Gateway does not insert a stamp on signed emails because this would break the signature and TNEF encoded messages. This will then prevent them from being encoded back.
