  • Hello Bob, I had a call with an sophos engineer. He told me that the firewall always blocks Office Documents with an ActiveX- Compomnent. I didnt know that. The Attachment of the mail a word-do   had ActiceX. The SG blocked the connection and the sending Mailserver continued trying sending for about 2 weeks.Meanwhile I talked to the Sender-Company and they promised not to send ActiveX anymore.

    Greetings Peter
