Yes, I kind of assumed the same (that .7z had been added to the list, but 
the webpage hasn't been updated to reflect).

However, *all* .7z (encrypted) archives are blocked, whether they contain 
"dangerous" attachments or not.

I'm hoping that Google have made a mistake here which they will recognise 
and fix real soon.
