Hi, sorry for the repost, but it seams my last message did not get through.

The problem I have is that when allowing EXE files for certain domains, 
they are sent to /dev/null instead of the user's mailbox. Anyone has a 
clue? I got the configuration to allow exe files from MailScanner's FAQ at 

This is my configuration:

Fedora C1 / Ensim Pro 4.01 / MailScanner / Sendmail / ClamAV / SpamAssassin

%rules-dir% = /etc/MailScanner/rules
Filename Rules = %etc-dir%/rules/filename.rules
Filetype Rules = %etc-dir%/rules/filetype.rules


FromOrTo:       *@agimsa.com.mx %etc-dir%/filename.cegimsa.rules.conf
FromOrTo:       *@commsa.com    %etc-dir%/filename.cegimsa.rules.conf
FromOrTo:       *@pemex.com.mx  %etc-dir%/filename.cegimsa.rules.conf
FromOrTo:       *@pemex.com     %etc-dir%/filename.cegimsa.rules.conf
FromOrTo:       default %etc-dir%/filename.rules.conf


FromOrTo:       *@agimsa.com.mx %etc-dir%/filetype.cegimsa.rules.conf
FromOrTo:       *@commsa.com    %etc-dir%/filetype.cegimsa.rules.conf
FromOrTo:       *@pemex.com.mx  %etc-dir%/filetype.cegimsa.rules.conf
FromOrTo:       *@pemex.com     %etc-dir%/filetype.cegimsa.rules.conf
FromOrTo:       default %etc-dir%/filetype.rules.conf

everything the same as default exept (tab separeted):

allow   \.exe$  Windows/DOS Executable  Executable DOS/Windows programs are 
dangerous in email

everything the same as defult exept (tab separeted):

allow   executable      -  -

filename.rules.conf > default
filetype.rules.conf > default

Thanks in advance!
