Note to Microsoft Office XP/2003 Users

ConfidentSend™, BatchPurifier™, MailValve EX™, and MailValve GX™ are able to remove hidden data & metadata from the new Open XML format, that is used as a native format in Microsoft Office® 2007/2010/2013/2016, and its files are recognized by their four letter extensions which ends with 'x' or 'm' (e.g. .docx, .xlsx, .pptx).

The older binary formats that were used as native formats in Office® XP/2003 (e.g. .doc, .xls, .ppt) are not supported.

Nevertheless, users of Office® XP/2003 can still benefit from our hidden data removal products by using the Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint File Formats, freely available for download at Microsoft® website. This Compatibility Pack will allow Office® XP/2003 users to create files in the new file formats which can be cleaned by our products.

Files that have already been created in the older binary formats, can be converted to the new formats using batch file format conversion tools.
