Allowing A Banned File Extension

Post by cbritton1978 » 02 Jul 2019 17:44

I keep trying to allow pst files through
Our vendor is sending them in a zip file so I am not sure if it has something to do with that.
I've changed the
filename.rules.conf file and put:
allow \.pst$
I've also tried commenting the line out.
I've ran sudo service mailscanner restart

If I look at the message in quarantine the same file is listed twice.
MailScanner: Dangerous attachment according to Microsoft Q883260 (4MPPOSTABILITY_OKUMA_VTM.pst)
MailScanner: Dangerous attachment according to Microsoft Q883260 (4MPPOSTABILITY_OKUMA_VTM.pst)

I am not sure what I am doing wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Q883260 is denied in filename.rules.conf (deny \.pst$ Dangerous Office Data File (according to Microsoft)

Zip files are allowed ( allow \.zip$ )

To try to allow the pst file, you could take a look at viewtopic.php?t=1498
