search the archives
and see /etc/MailScanner/rules/*
not tested and no guarantee.
please correct me if i am wrong i have no great experiences with rules.
i prefer [tab] as delimiter in all rules
##Filename Rules = %etc-dir%/filename.rules.conf
Filename Rules = %etc-dir%/filename.rules
FromOrTo: user1 at sld.tld %etc-dir%/rules/user.conf
FromOrTo: user2 at sld.tld %etc-dir%/rules/user.conf
FromOrTo: default %etc-dir%/filename.rules.conf
allow \.zip$ - -
jump to "filename.rules"
if firstname.lastname@example.org" go to "user.conf"
zip is allowed
default go to "filename.rules.conf"
restart / reload mailscanner
# service MailScanner restart
check the logs
# tail -f /var/log/maillog
and test it
