Archive Support

 

The Archive Support functionality adds value by providing you with the reassurance and confidence to safely receive archive files.  

 

Archive Support: Features

 

This feature leverages our existing patented CDR technology to clean and rebuild multiple documents in an archive file to match their known good manufacturer’s standard.  

The file types that are supported are Zip, Tar, GZip, 7Zip, and Rar. Some Archive file types cannot be rebuilt into the same file type; for these, the replacement file types are also shown below:

How does it work and how can I help test?

 

Create an archive file and send it to your domain email address. You can send the file from your personal email address for example, and it should be received by your domain email address.   

If a file is deemed malicious or is suspected to be, it will be held, and the receiver will see a held file notification.   

The Archive Support functionality processes up to 5 archive files. Archives within archives that exceed the nesting limit of 5 are held. You will receive all nested archives within the limit, but those nested too deeply will be held. Sending an email with multiple archive file attachments has no limit on the number of attachments (apart from the total size of the email).   

Some of the scenarios that you can test are:   

  • Sending an archive file and ensuring that it is received.  

  • Sending an archive file with a known malicious file. The malicious file should be held, and you should receive a report to inform you of this.   

  • Archives within archives that exceed the nesting limit of 5 are held. You will receive all nested archives within the limit, but those nested too deeply will be held.   

  • Sending different incoming file types, as outlined above.  

  • Any other usability related scenarios.
