Unsupported file types
For security reasons, certain file extensions are not supported attachment types:
This list is not comprehensive and just because a file type is not listed as unsupported does not automatically mean that it is supported.
If you experience issues uploading a file type not listed, save and upload the file as a one of the listed supported extensions. Alternatively, compress the affected attachment as a .zip file and try to upload.
