Narpender Bawa spake the following on 7/22/2005 1:44 PM:
> An  internal user sent an email message that contained a number of

> file, so the mail scanner quarantined the .zip file which is OK. However,
> the recepient did not get the remaining attachments, even the ones that
> passed the scanning. Is it possible to configure the mail scanner to allow
> delivery of rest of the attached files and quarantine only the ones that

> or .scr or .js) file contained in a .zip file and allow delivery of the rest
> of the files contained in the same .zip file.  
> Any help in this regard will be highly appreciated.
> Thank you,

MailScanner doesn't fix archive files, it just unpacks the attachments
so they can be scanned. You can only allow or deny files, or tell it to
not check in archives.
