Forum Thread: Win Rar Attachment

Hello Experts,
I have Exchange 2010 with SP3 Roll Update 3 with Forefront installed on it.
I have a user who was trying to send an email with attachment in 5 MB size and it is win rar compressed file.
but the internal and external users are receiving as text
This is the error «FILE QUARANTINED»

The original contents of this file have been replaced with this message because of its characteristics.
File name: 'winmail.dat->File.part3.rar'
Malware name: 'CorruptedCompressedFile'

Please can someone help to resolve this recovery rar?

what do I do? any ideas? I would be grateful for any advice.


I had a similar situation. I found an option on Forefront Protection for Exchange 2010 under Policy Magement > General Options > Advanced

Treat multi-part .rar archive as a corrupted file. I removed the checked from this options, which enabled by default. Maybe you can also help this way.

Thank you for the help!
