bad filename detected: condition to trigger

hi all,
  In my filename.rules.conf I have denied access to .msg and .zip (and to many other extensions). I also have a ruleset that when a mail is sent from my server the filename and filetype rules should not be checked.
  Now, the problem is when a user from is sending a mail with attachment .zip the file is not blocked becuase of the ruleset and this behaviour is correct. But when the user sends a mail with .msg attachment the file is blocked. This looks strange for me. Am I missing something in my configuration? Please advice. Thank you.
