      Content Type Exceptions

       
      Trend Micro recommends minimizing the list of MIME content-types to skip to reduce the risk of virus infection. Also, Trend Micro does not recommend skipping any MIME content-types when large file handling is enabled, because it is possible for a MIME contenttype to be forged.
