    Do you have an antivirus installed? Edit the exim configuration file:

    pico -w /etc/exim.conf

    Scroll down, you should have two lines somewhere after "check_message:" like these:

    Code:
    deny message = Potentially executable content. If you meant to send this file \
    then please package it up as a zip file and resend it.
    demime = ade:adp:bas:bat:chm:cmd:com:cpl:crt:eml:exe:hlp:... (etc)
    Just remove the extension you don't want to be blocked.

    If your exim.conf file doesnt' have such lines, open it with pico and search (Ctrl+W) for text "eml". It shouldn't be difficult to figure how to prevent that extension from being filtered.

    Jaime, that's not part of the cPanel default exim.conf file.

    You most likely need to edit /etc/antivirus.exim and search that for eml and remove references to it, then restart exim.

    I know, that's why i asked if he had installed an antivirus. Those lines were written on my exim.conf file after installing Clam.

    As Chirpy said, edit /etc/antivirus.exim or whatever that is after "system_filter = " in exim.conf.

    Jaime, I think you'll find they were probably added by something else (exiscan perhaps?). ClamAV will definitely not have added them (it doesn't touch Exim).
