    Issues with emails with attachments getting filtered out.

    I had put an attachment in an email that never get to it's destination. There were 2 flash files and a gif attached to it. That same email was send back today 2007-04-10 at 14:04 and was filtered out again.

    Also, yesterday two emails were sent. Both emails had an mp3 file within them and were filtered out.

    Got this automated response after sending an email with a .eml file in attachment :

    A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
    recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

    Code:
      testuser@local-domain.com
        This message has been rejected because it has
        a potentially executable attachment "Bigbox + intersticielle.eml"
        This form of attachment has been used by
        recent viruses or other malware.
        If you meant to send this file then please
        package it up as a zip file and resend it.

    It has been blocked as it contains "intersticielle.eml" in it, please note that .eml extensions are not allowed by exim, you will need to edit your antivirus.exim to allow them.

    Thanks but what about the flash files and mp3?

    Is it a bad idea to remove the eml filter? I do not know too much about that area

    As far as I know eml are extensions for outlook emails. however it should not be blocking .mp3 and flash files.. I think you should try sending them as ZIP/RAR files.

    I have an updated ruleset, contact me if you need help. The ruleset youre using has false positives on binary attachments
