I had a user that wanted to receive a newletter, but it was being blocked.
Looking through the archives I found what I need to do to take care of
this problem. I edited MailScanner.conf and changed to:
Allow Object Codebase Tags = /etc/MailScanner/rules/object.code.rules
The contents of object.code.rules:
# This file is to allow Object Codebase Tags from APPROVED domains.
# This next line gives an example of how you might enable this option for
# a frequent customer of yours.
#From: yourcustomer.com yes
From: marketwatchmail.com yes
# Under no circumstances should this be changed to "yes".
FromOrTo: default no
I stopped MailScanner, and sendmail, did a ps -ef | grep ail to make
sure MailScanner and sendmail did in fact stop. Then started
MailScanner again. I am trying to release the message to the user,
but it continues to be blocked. What am i missing? I went into
/var/spool/MailScanner/archives/%date%/%files% and tried to open them
in a browser but they are garbled up. What do I need to do in order
to get this newsletter to the user?
