I did make one change to the MailScanner.conf. I
didn't mention it earlier (but should have) because I
have had the same problem in the past with making any
changes at all. I changed it to allow password
protected archives (for our HR department). so I
changed the following from no to yes:
# Should archives which contain any password-protected
files be allowed?
# Leaving this set to "no" is a good way of protecting
against all the
# protected zip files used by viruses at the moment.
# This can also be the filename of a ruleset.
Allow Password-Protected Archives = yes
Do You Yahoo!?
