Is there a way to stop Exim from trying to return blocked mail with .src/.pif attachments, I am getting 1000,s every day with spoofed email addresses and they just sit in the queue.
Does anyone know how to make Exim fail or discard them?
Thanks for the info.
The thread you mention deals with removing them from the queue what I was trying to find out is if there is a way to block or remove mail with certain attachmentes before they arrive stuck in the queue.
I have them in the list of attachments not permited but Exim returns the mail to the sender, this is the problem the sender is usualy a spoofed address and the mail can't be delivered.
Is this what you refer to as 'denied files in /etc/antivirus.exim', or is there another way to deny a file type?
