    i need to enable some EXE files to go through mailscanner. So I edited filename.rules.conf with the specified filenames :

    allow AAAA\(doc\)\.exe$ - - <with tabs separating the fields>

    This does work on my previous Ensim server with mailscanner but strangely doesn't work here.

    The file actually got blocked by "filetype.rules.conf".

    Does this means that that EXE file went through both filename and filetype test? Strangely it works on another server with ensim. That filetype.rules.conf was at default of this :


    deny executable No executables No programs allowed

    So, I have to allow this executable in filetype.rules.conf?

    Any idea?

    i have disabled that exe line in filetype.rules.conf but still refuse to come in. Where else would exe files be checked?

    As well as filetype.rules.conf, try checking filename.rules.conf.

    Here error i get :

    The virus detector said this about the message:
    Report: Report: MailScanner: Executable DOS/Windows programs are dangerous in email (AAAA(doc).exe) *
    Report: No programs allowed (AAAA(doc).exe) **

    -------

    * this should be from filename.rules.conf
    ** this should be from filetype.rules.conf

    Hmm....where else!!! ? :(

    I don't believe there's anywhere else you can check.

    Mind posting the full contents of both these conf files?
