    A few clients complain that mailscanner blocked some emails they need just because it has attachment with html file, is there any way to disable this function in mailscanner ?

    And, do we really need to blocked all content that has script in the html style emails ?
    Sometimes people just forward a web page to us and the email will be blocked just because of there is a javascript in it.

    You can set to not delete by domain by using rule sets. Rule sets are simple and also explained in the admin doc.

    Chirpy on these forums is the expert here, but I would say that you can add the file name extension to
    /usr/mailscanner/etc/filename.rules.conf
    And as always restart mailscanner to take effect.

    Also, it might not be MailScanner blocking the files (unless it says it is): you might want to disable using /etc/antivirus.exim which blocks some attachments based on file extension too. You can do this in WHM > Exim Configuration Editor, or just do:

    cat /dev/null > antivirus.exim

    Then restart Exim.

    OK, I know I can set a ruleset, like this:
    "Filetype Rules = %etc-dir%/rules/filetype.rules"
    but what should I put the lines in that file ?

    Can I use these:
    FromOrTo: *@my_domain.com %etc-dir%/other-filetype.rules.conf
    FromOrTo: default %etc-dir%/filetype.rules.conf

    Well, your MailScanner.conf should already have these defined and configured:

    Filename Rules = %etc-dir%/filename.rules.conf
    Filetype Rules = %etc-dir%/filetype.rules.conf

    The syntax of those files is described within them. AFAIK you cannot have a ruleset within a ruleset - you either filter on certain file types/names or not, you cannot filter specific files per domain.

    I really don't think so, cause in the MailScanner.cof file it says:
    # This can also point to a ruleset, but the ruleset filename must end in
    # ".rules" so that MailScanner can determine if the filename given is
    # a ruleset or not!

    Then the comments are wrong, because that is how MailScanner sets it up by default :rolleyes:

    Yes! I can do it now.
    It's possibile to set ruleset on filetype for some domain or some users.
