Above the double-extension deny rule, add an allow rule like such:

allow	\.cmt\.rtf$	-	-

Warning: please note that the above fields MUST be delimted by TAB characters.
If you copy-paste into your config file, they'll likely get changed to spaces
and you'll have to fix that.

You can see a lot of other examples of exceptions you might wish to consider in
the file attached to my post earlier today with the subject "Re: Checking
Suspected E-Mails".
