I think F-PROT AVES removed an image from my e-mail. Why?

This can be caused by a few things, depending on the mail and your preferences. The most common reasons are as follows:
  • The image may have been sent as an executable file. Executable files are potential carriers of viruses or worms and are blocked by F-PROT AVES. Many worms try to trick users into opening executables by claiming within the message body that the file executable is really a harmless image.


  • The image may never have been in the message to begin with. It is a common mistake to attach a shortcut to an image instead of the image itself. When this happens a file ending in ".lnk" is added to the mail. Shortcut files (.lnk files) are potential carriers of viruses or worms and are blocked by F-PROT AVES.


  • When high security is requested, F-PROT AVES verifies that the attachment file names match the attachment content and other technical information present in the mail. If the information does not all match, then the attachment may be renamed or removed as a preventative security measure.
