Hi all,

I'm trying to bypass filename checking  using the examples mentioned in 
the book
in Appendix C  . In particular I have created the three mentioned files 
filetype.rules.allowall.conf and filename.rules). The only different 
thing I have done
different is that I specify a complete mail address instead of the 
domain eg:

FromOrTo:  user at email.tld %etc-dir%/filename.rules.allowall.conf

(I don't want the whole domain to go unchecked, only some users) . But 
the rule don't seem to work
Is this the expected behavior ? If not can I somehow trace why the rule 
doesn't apply ?

Also can I specify in the rule  that I want to bypass the filename (or 
type) checks when the user is the sender but not when the user is the 
recipient ?
