compile_resource.rar->compile_resource.bat has been removed since it was found to match the FILE FILTER= ExchangeLabs File Filter List 1: <in>*.bat file filter.
So how do I get the .bat file back. The colleague has gone on vacation and I need the file
From my understanding, your colleague send an email with a rar file attached that contains a batch file (.bat), when you receive the file, the .bat file has been removed and replaced with a text file, you would like to get the .bat file back. Am I correct?
In this situation, the .bat file was blocked by our Exchange server by default, for higher security. Therefore, unfortunately, you would not be able to get the file back.
As a workaround, I suggest have your colleague change the suffix of the .bat file, and re-send the attachment.
In addition, we would be able to check our Outlook Web App Mailbox Policies and change it, in this way, we can prevent the certain file type been blocked.
You can refer to the following steps:
1), Install and Configure Windows PowerShell.
2), Run the following command:
Run “ Get-OwaMailboxPolicy ” and note the BlockedMimeTypes, AllowedMimeTypes.
Run “ Set-OwaMailboxpolicy “ to change the blocked and allowed filetypes.
