We have all .doc,.zip,.docm attachments blocked completely that are coming in, but this one slipped through and have no idea how. We've blocked other .docm attachemtns, so it is working and I send some samples in as tests to see if its still working and it is.

Is there anything different with this one that might have got it through out attachment blocks?
