    My main goal was stopping incomingo spam.. and MailScanner is doing a great work on that.. but, it is taking too much time extracting and scanning attachments... does anyone know how to disable scanning the attachments ?

    Code:
    12:10   3 [B]MailScanner: extracting attachments[/B]
    
    Thanks!

    All of those 3 variables are empty, but my main process still is:

    Code:
      602 mailnull  25   0 39904  38M  2756 R    23,8  1,9   6:08   0 MailScanner: extracting attachments
    
    Servere already was configured using this values:

    1. Set "File Command =" to blank.

    2. Set "Filename Rules =" to blank.

    3. Set "Filetype Rules =" to blank.

    4. To disable checking of zip attachments, set "Maximum Archive Depth =" to 0.

    If i kill the process, once mailscanner is restarted, it comes again and shows the same message..

    Any ideas how to avoid attachment scanning or extraccting ?
