Hi People,

Sorry to re-post, but has anyone else got any ideas on how I can fix
this issue?  I've been trying to make it work on one of our test boxes
for a few days but have had no success.

> Notify Senders Of Blocked Filenames Or Filetypes = yes
> Notify Senders Of Other Blocked Content = yes
> I have used yes above to eliminate the possibility of ruleset errors causing it.
> On a side not it would be really cool if we could have a "Notify
