I see. I wasn't aware that the file type can still be determined if the
archive is password-protected. BTW, there's also a setting for allowing
encrypted archives, so there's obviously a difference between
"password-protected" and "encrypted".

I think this would be a good option as it would allow certain filetypes
thru if the sender zips and password-protects them. But I don't see a way
to currently achieve this.
I think if you want to have an immediate workaround you have to use a
rules file and exclude certain senders from the file type check.
