> MPEG movies allowed
> deny AVI No AVI movies No AVI
> movies allowed
> I want to allow them through for a particular domain

> MailScanner.conf file:
> # Set where to find the attachment filetype ruleset.
> # The structure of this file is explained elsewhere,

> # accept or reject file attachments based on their
> content as determined
> # by the "file" command, regardless of whether they
> are infected or not.
> # This can also point to a ruleset, but the ruleset
> filename must end in
> # ".rules" so that MailScanner can determine if the
> filename given is
> # a ruleset or not!
> # To disable this feature, set this to just "Filetype
> Rules =" or set
> # the location of the file command to a blank string.
> Filetype Rules = %etc-dir%/filetype.rules.conf
> Any help is appreciated.
