Please read the MailScanner.conf file.

# The maximum depth to which zip archives will be unpacked, to allow for
# checking filenames and filetypes within zip archives.
# To disable this feature set this to 0.
# A common useful setting is this option = 0, and Allow Password-Protected
# Archives = no. That block password-protected archives but does not do
# any filename/filetype checks on the files within the archive.
Maximum Archive Depth = 0
