Benefits / Drawbacks for enabling "Detect Suspicious email attachments."


ENS On Access Scan has an option  for enabling "Detect Suspicious email attachments.". I was wondering if there are any major benefits or drawbacks in enabling this option?

In the vent that I opened a malicious file, wouldn't I be covered if I am running ATP and ENS Threat Protection at the endpoint level.

Thank you.

Thank you. I saw those articles previously and I took note of them. 

I was interested to know if there are any concerns with enabling this feature, since I worked closely with McAfee on the deployment of ENS 10.6 and 10.7 and it was neve a recommendation at that time.

Thank you.
