Excel importer protected view

1
Hi,  In my project I use the Excel Importer module. The file I try to import can be sent via e-mail and when this happens the file is automatically set to protected view, when the file is in protected view it can not be imported (It can read the columns but there is no data). I can manually go the file and disable the protected view and then the import works fine but It would be nice if I can import regardless of the protected view.  Iā€™m wondering if there is a workaround known for this challenge?  Thanks in advance!

The Excel importer module uses apache POI for the handling of the data in the sheets and the protected view is not something that can be changed by the POI library. This is setup in the Trust Center for office.
