Hi guys

I'm having problems with text being detected as MPEG files.
The error I'm getting from MS is:

The following e-mails were found to have: Bad Filename Detected

    Sender: xxxxx at example.com
IP Address:
 Recipient: yyyyy at example.org
   Subject: RE: Statistik
 MessageID: p937N5Zx000344
Quarantine: /var/spool/MailScanner/quarantine/20111003/p937N5Zx000344
    Report: MailScanner: No MPEG movies allowed (msg-2048-10.txt)

This has been up before, but can't seem to find the solution.

Any clues on how to handle this?

The first couple of lines in the file is ( ? = danish character æ ):


Glostrup Pakke blev ikke solgt i denne periode...

The first 8 bytes of 'msg-2048-10.txt' in HEX are:

00000000 56 E6 72 73 ¦ 67 6F 0A 20

Using the file command, i get:

# file msg-2048-10.txt
msg-2048-10.txt: MPEG-4 LOAS

Adding an -i parameter give:

# file -i msg-2048-10.txt
msg-2048-10.txt: audio/x-mp4a-latm; charset=iso-8859-1
