These are regexps, not globs. Mailscanner recognizes this common error
and converts a leading * to .*, but not others, so *\.com*\.xml$ will
match names ending with '.com.xml', '.comm.xml', '.commm.xml;, etc, but
not, e.g. '.comic.xml'.

you want '.*\.com[^.]*\.xml' to match names ending with .com followed by
zero or more non-dots followe by .xml.
