While we prefer that you use the Extreme Portal to upload files directly to your case instead of using email file attachments, email file attachments are supported.

When sending a password-protected attachment in one email followed by an attachment password in a separate email, please send the password email with the same case number in the subject as the attachment email.

When creating a new case using an email with a password-protected attachment, please wait until you receive the new case number before sending the password email with the same case number as the attachment email. Please do not send two consecutive emails, one with attachment and one with password, both with supported classes in the subject and both with no case number. If you do, the attachment and password will be recorded in separate new cases.

If your email system automatically password-protects attachments and sends passwords in a separate email, please do not attach files to the first email you use to open a case. After you receive a case number, please include it in the subject line of all mails you use to send attachments for the case. If your email system maintains subject lines for automatic password emails, the attachment and password will be recorded in the same case. If your email system automatically password protects attachments but does not maintain subject lines, please do not send email attachments. We may not receive the password. Please use the Extreme Portal to upload files directly to your case.
