    Hi Guys,

    Since the last whm-update (2015-10-27) the mails with an .EML attachment gets blocked. Any solutions here?

    Best Regards,

    Hi Guys,

    I found a Thread who helped me out: Cpanel rejecting .eml attachments


    In future Cpanel updates, /etc/cpanel_exim_system_filter may get overwritten if you edit it.

    Solution:

    1. cp /etc/cpanel_exim_system_filter /etc/cpanel_exim_system_filter_custom

    2. Then edit /etc/cpanel_exim_system_filter_custom and remove the eml| from the four noncommented lines that reference it.

    3. Then log into WHM, click on Exim Configuration Editor, and change the system filter at the bottom from /etc/cpanel_exim_system_filter to /etc/cpanel_exim_system_filter_custom . Save the changes

    Now Cpanel will use /etc/cpanel_exim_system_filter_custom, which if properly edited to remove the 'eml|' references in the particular lines will allow EML attachments to go through in the future.


    Downside:

    If Cpanel updates /etc/cpanel_exim_system_filter, you won't benefit from the changes.
