please consider adding an option to disable replacement of e-mail attachments with .txt files.

Those replacements usually include information similar to below example:


--- potentially malicious content has been removed ---

The file 'malicious.pdf', received from domain just.an.example, has been removed and will be further analyzed.
You will receive the complete message as soon as the analysis is finished.

--- this message was generated by GenericFWName01 (SMTP) ---


I found following article in campus, which describes CustomBlockPages:




The page "Mail Security Virus Scan Text" is specified as follows:


" Placeholder text to replace infected email attachments removed by the virus scanner. "


However, the page described above (written in HTML) is not the same as the one users receive (plain text, as seen above).


We are using a NG Firewall F400b running on 7.0.0-672 with ATD enabled.


I appreciate your support.


Best Regards
