Add these lines to /etc/MailScanner/filename.rules.conf, somewhere near 
the top. And note that each of the "words" on each line must be 
separated with tab characters and not spaces!

# These are in the archives which are Microsoft Office 2007 files (e.g. 
allow   \.xml\d*\.rel$          -       -
allow   \.x\d+\.rel$            -       -

Then "service MailScanner reload" or just wait a few hours and it will 
start using the new configuration.
