We have an application that generates emails in outlook on client machines

and attaches a PDF file to the message. User may sometimes change a subject

of the message or add a line of text.

PDF files get named using the following rule FILENAME.001.PDF,

FILENAME.002.PDF.

Sometimes we may get the following email back

" The message below (subject: "") that you sent was not delivered because

it contained one or more prohibited attachments. The prohibited attachment

filenames are below"

Which indicates that receiving end has some type of the filtering system

that prevents attachments with 001 as an extension. So my question is would

it be possible to modify the file name attached to the message that passes

enterprise version of exchange 2003 if file name contains two dots in it?

Thanks

Not that I am aware of.

I would check with the application developers about a more friendly naming

concept.
