Signature Images to Ignore on email as attachments - registry settings - just not working

At one time the "ignore" feature worked - basically it is supposed to be a "filter" that slmn.dll uses to ignore some attachments in saving email - specifically those "messy" png,, jpg, gif, etc items that are a a couple of kb or smaller. These do nothing but "trash-up" the attachment table and are totally useless.

 

Here's the original info on this item:

 

 

It's just not working anymore. Anyone else experiencing this same issue?

Thanks RJ, great info.

 

Do you know of a way to clean up all the junk attachments that this allowed?  Like files < 1K with names like imageNNN.gif / jpg / png, etc.

Re: Signature Images to Ignore on email as attachments - registry settings - just not working

Hi RJ,

 

Does the 'Exclude graphics files' option not work for you within the SLX75SP2Conversion.exe? The reason I ask this is because I’m currently working on a support issue where this functionality is not excluding the specified images for our customer but appears to work fine for me..

Not working for me or ANY of my customers... typically a WIndows7 64 bit env.. but some are 32 bit.

There's an application from Radish Tools called Attachment Monitor that is a server side service that deletes and archives small attachments nightly.

Yep.. know about it.. but the SLX registry "hack" did work for a long time.. and now doesn't.. SLX needs to fix this.

 

For now I use TaskCentre (on my system and customer systems that have it) to delete the junk and fix up the attachment table.
