Allowing .pr3 files through

I reaaly hate top posting but am using the new Yahoo mail beta and it doesn't seem I can change this to good old ">" replies.
I tried this and get:
# file wimrpmd2.pr3
wimrpmd2.pr3: MS-DOS executable (EXE), OS/2 or MS Windows
So you're right, the server considers these files executables so they match against one of these:
deny ELF No executables No programs allowed
deny executable No executables No programs allowed
Hmm.. this now poses the question, how can I allow .pr3 files specifically but disallow all other executables?

It might think its an executable PR3 can be used as postsrcipt extension
so I'm suprised it's not allowed with what you have
Filetype rules will over-ride filename everytime, filetype is based on
system " file " where filename I don't beleive uses file in tests and just
takes your word for it on filename, making filetype a much more sensible
approach to be the top level guardian.
and see what it says it thinks it is
