Configuring File Password Analysis

  1. Choose Inbound Protection > Virus Scan > File Password Analysis.
  2. In the File Password Analysis Settings section, select Enable file password analysis.
  3. Optionally select Hold on a message to associate later messages for password analysis and specify a certain amount of time for Analysis timeout.

    This step is required if you want Trend Micro Email Security to associate later email messages to further analyze the file password for the current email message. The current message will not be released for delivery during the analysis timeout period.

  4. Click Save.

    To help Trend Micro Email Security crack file passwords more efficiently, you can add or import passwords that are commonly used by your organization as the user-defined passwords. Trend Micro Email Security will try the user-defined passwords first before any other ways to extract or open files.
