    Smoothwall - Hotmail attachments

    Managed to get hotmail working for users by inserting custom allowed URL's, and the users can access their hotmail accounts, however they cannot download attachments.

    What do I need to do in Guardian to allow this facility?

    possibly check the bannedextention list/page to see if said attachments are in the list to be blocked?

    on smoothwall express 3 (with the dansguardian mod installed), its in /etc/dansgaurdian/[profile you use, eg adult]/bannedextentionlist.

    in schoolguardian, i'd imagine that its on one of the filtering pages but i don't have a schoolguardian box to check it on

    edit - this should help you find the page you are looking for on SG.

    I would definitely take a look at the file extensions selected under 'File security' in 'guardian >> filtering >> filters'. If, for example, archives are blocked this may be your problem.

    The sure-fire way to confirm the problem is to check your logs and/or show an excerpt if you are not sure. Let us know how you get on!

    Think we may have cracked it already, as you say, under the 'filters' section. Won't know if it really works till Monday when the students who need to use it will be trying to download.

    Thanks.

    Yep, we had. Just needed to allow files to be downloaded! Easy when you know how!
