strange blocking

Hi, my problem is that if I have to send an exe-file, I usually (in an earlier version of MailScanner) rename the file to txt and it will pass through the MailScanner filter. But - after the upgrade - if I first compress the exe-file to zip and then rename the zip to txt it will be blocked by MailScanner (I can still rename pure exe-files to txt and send them). I have already comment out "Block executables" in my conf but leaved the default block rule for exe, com and other dangerous attachements. How can I solve this?
