My filename.rules.conf looks like this;
# NOTE: Fields are separated by TAB characters --- Important!
# Syntax is allow/deny/deny+delete, then regular expression, then log text,
#           then user report text.
# If none of the rules match, then the filetype is allowed.
allow   text            -                       -
allow   script          -                       -
allow   archive         -                       -
allow   postscript      -                       -

Why does MailScanner block bmp´s even if I have allowed it in my conf-file?
