We have been trying to use Domino mail rules to scan for and quarantine email messages that contain file attachments with certain extensions.  While the mail rules do allow you to search for files using "any attachment names", the only options for the condition are "is", "is not", "contains" and "does not contain".  Unfortunately, using "contains" catches files that do not have that extension, but do have letters matching the extension elsewhere in the file name.  For example, using ".exe" as the criteria also matches

We would like to have one (or both) of the following capabilities added to the mail rules in Domino to help us to scan mail attachments:

1. Add a new conditions for all search options called "ends with". Adding another called "starts with". This would match the criteria against the first or last characters of whatever is being searched.

2. Add a new option to the list called "any attachment extension" that only looks at the end of the attachment name after the final dot.

It seems that these would be relatively easy to implement.
