    is there any way to stop exim blockin mdb files ? i see no mention of mdb in the antivirus.exim file .

    This message has been rejected because it has
    a potentially executable attachment &export.mdb&
    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.


    Thanks

    Look for the string md[be] in /etc/antivirus.exim, that's it.

    Are you sure you have removed all instances? (four, I think)

    And what do you get with
    # grep &message_filter& /etc/exim.conf
    ?

    Can this be done only from the root /etc (server wide) or can antivirus.exim be used from a users 'etc' directory?
