The only places you need tabs instead of spaces are in the and filetype/name.rules.conf files.
You can use any whitespace in *.rules files.
Any ideas why the movie files still get through?

Is there some sort of MailScanner command I could use in debug mode or similar which I can input an email or attachment and see why MailScanner let the message or file through?

This setup works for so many other domains I host for, just not this particular one?
