    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.

    Go on, have a guess
    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).
