Dear List members
I have added the rule for the .scr files (see below)
I have also stopped and restarted mailscanner but it seems to be
ignoring the rule, I tested it by sending myself an attachment called
goner.scr (a text file) and it passes through.
Testing the system by sending myself a filename with double
extentions is also getting through even though I #ed the allow
commend and rebooted the mailscanner!
Stopping mailscanner stops send mail as well doesn't it?

> deny \.scr$ Possible trojan horse possible virus
> deny \.exe$ Possible trojan horse possible virus
> deny \.asd$ possible virus possible virus deny \.chm$
