> According to

> FromOrTo: @domain1.com no
> FromOrTo: default yes
> And set MailScanner.conf:

> Restarted MailScanner, but this does not seem to work.
> The MailScanner is acting like Zip Attachments setting = no for everyone.

Make sure you aren't just giving it files that are too small to trigger it:
Attachments Min Total Size To Zip = 100k
is the default setting.
Also, remember that MailScanner uses the envelope sender and
recipient(s) and not the addresses that appear in the headers.
Have you checked it with "MailScanner --lint"? Also, what happens when
you do a command like this:
MailScanner --value=zipattachments --from user at domain1.com
and then an opposite example:
MailScanner --value=zipattachments --from user at domain2.com
The first one should give you a "no" result while the 2nd one should
give you a "yes" result.
If that works, then your ruleset is correct, and so you need to get back
to us so I can take a look and test it out myself.

Don't quite understand your point here.
