    When i forward emails to other people using thunderbird, I got this alert: An error occured while sending mail. The mail server responded: We do not accept ".eml" attachments here. If you meant to send this file then please package it up as a zip file and resend it...
    What is the problem? And how could i fix it?

    When an email is saved , it is saved in .eml format on the local machine. May be the mail server does not support the .eml attachments . OR the virus on your local machine might be causing the problem . It better you send the attachment in zip format . Also check for the virus on your local machine

    Go on, have a guess
    The problem is actually in /etc/antiviurus.exim which blocks .eml file extensions.

    Thanks for your help. So if i want to send .eml file, i can edit the /etc/antiviurus.exim and unblock eml extension, right?

    Yes, though modifications will get overwritten when exim is next upgraded.
