    whenever someone tries to send me an e-mail with certain attachments, it's gets bounced back to them

    and it's not conveinent to zip it because .url is the extension used when you use "File->Send->Link by e-mail" from internet explorer
    and it blocks many other extensions, including exe.

    Actually, its safer to block anything thats not a zip.
    How ever I will check security settings to see if I can come up with anything.

    Actually, Found where it detects.
    /etc/antivirus.exim

    Search ZIP then look for things to change, remember to make a backup incase.

    Thanks,

    What do you mean a user end?

    Like download it to your computer and change it.
    Directly change it, or not a server admin and want to cahnge it your self.

    Please specify
    Thanks,

    is there any way by which I can disable this check for one more selected domains. For these domains, I would like to receive mails with any extention.

    WOW, Old post. I don't think it can be done domain wise. Since it is a global setting, how ever I will look around for you.

    In the antivirus.exim, it use IF loop to check the extensions of attachment.

    You can try to write somethings like:

    if($header_content-type:matches "........")
    and not($header_sender: contains "@xxxx.com" or $reply_address contains "@xxx.com") then
    fail text ....
    ....
    seen finish
    end if


    to enable the filter for which is not for specific domain

    Thanks for your time. I got that fixed that day itself.

    just need to add this much there.

    if $message_headers: contains "@domain.com"
    then finish
    endif

    Cheers :)

    This will disable check for inbound and outbound mails for this domain. If you need to bypass only incoming,

    $header_to: contains will do
