Note: Old Office-formats in e-mails will be blocked

The authorities of the Free State of Saxony will no longer accept e-mail attachments with old office formats (.doc, .xls, .ppt) as from January 1, 2020. In such cases, only the email text will be transfered. The reason for the block are security considerations of the Free State. The old office formats are used to attack computers and networks with malware.

The block is implemented in the joint network of the Free State and municipalities in Saxony. This affects all authorities of the Free State (in the Saxon administration network) and all municipalities that are connected to the municipal data network. Both the sender and recipient of such an e-mail will be informed about the blocking of the attachment.
