hi all,

Im using Postfix on a Freebsd 4.8 O.S. and choose mailscanner to add
on my production mail server. Unfortunately, having the email up.

Ive tested to send mails from my internal network to and vice
and the results were bad. Its not filtering emails with executable.

conf of my Mailscanner
Filename Rules = %rules-dir%/filename.rules
Filetype Rules = %rules-dir%/filetype.rules

where rulesdir is
%rules-dir% = /usr/local/etc/MailScanner/rules
and etc-dir is
%etc-dir% = /usr/local/etc/MailScanner

content of filename.rules
FromOrTo:       default          %etc-dir%/filename.rules.conf

content of filetype.rules
FromOrTo:       default         %etc-dir%/filetype.rules.conf

Im using the default of filename and filetype.rules.conf.

Still, I can receive/send attachments from/to outside .

I am checking activities on /var/log/maillog and /var/log/messages
but can seem to determine whats wrong.

Pls. help..
