Filetypes and filenames not being checked

Good morning,

I have just had a user bring to my attention that since I upgraded to 
4.54.x we are no longer stopping filenames with double suffixes or 
banned suffixes.

I tried a test and sure enough two files went right through, 
test.svx.doc and test.scr. I double checked my conf files and everything 
looks good, mailscanner --lint shows no errors.

I haven't changed anything in the conf file except to add MailWatch. I 
went through the change log and docs and didn't see anything that I 
thought would affect me.

Has there been a change in how the filename.rules.conf files work?



Three years now I've asked Google why they don't have a
logo change for Memorial Day. Why do they choose to do logos
for other non-international holidays, but nothing for

Maybe they forgot who made that choice possible.
