    I know of all the reasons to block .eml. But I am not in a position to do so.

    So onward:

    I need to be able to forward email as .eml (Outlook & Thunderbird), but Cpanel bounces them back. I was able to temporarily solve that by removing eml from bad attachments in this file:


    Code:
    /usr/local/cpanel/etc/exim/sysfilter/options/attachments
    
    (I did a search and removed eml)

    Then a few days later, these attachments are back in that file.

    I just discovered ANOTHER file:


    Code:
    /etc/cpanel_exim_system_filter
    Which looks very much like the attachments file. So I think by not editing the latter, the former got overwrote. I'm not sure what the relationship of these two files are, so I am hoping someone can clue me in.

    I do have "ASSP Deluxe for CPanel" But this is happening on exim level not ASSP.

    ps: this is on a Redhat 4 machine.

    In future Cpanel updates, /etc/cpanel_exim_system_filter may get overwritten if you edit it.

    Solution:

    1. cp /etc/cpanel_exim_system_filter /etc/cpanel_exim_system_filter_custom

    2. Then edit /etc/cpanel_exim_system_filter_custom and remove the eml| from the four noncommented lines that reference it.

    3. Then log into WHM, click on Exim Configuration Editor, and change the system filter at the bottom from /etc/cpanel_exim_system_filter to /etc/cpanel_exim_system_filter_custom . Save the changes

    Now Cpanel will use /etc/cpanel_exim_system_filter_custom, which if properly edited to remove the 'eml|' references in the particular lines will allow EML attachments to go through in the future.


    Downside:

    If Cpanel updates /etc/cpanel_exim_system_filter, you won't benefit from the changes.

    Has anyone got a recipe for making changes like this that only apply to one domain or account, rather than to the whole server config? Thanks.
