This is where it gets confusing.
There does not appear to be a global "Ignore scanning from my local network
outbound" kind of thing and if there is, I cannot get it to work.
I've found the filename.rules.conf and the filetype.rules.conf (in the
%etc-dir%) which seem to be responsible for killing off my attachment.
I've modified the MailScanner.conf to have:
Allow Filenames = %rules-dir%/allow.filenames.rules
Allow Filetypes = %rules-dir%/allow.filetypes.rules
I ASSUME these are the sorts of files you are talking about.
Well, I've added my details to both the above mentioned files (which I
touched to create)
From: 192.168.0. yes
From: <my e-mail address> yes
It's still killing off (in this case) EXE files.
Surely I'm just stupid and this IS possible? When I run updatedb and then
locate MailScanner.conf I only seem to have one copy of this, so it IS
looking at it, just not reacting to some of the options. Or is it? Am I
screwing up somewhere else?
