How can I get EFA to ignore file type checking for outbound emails

Post by webguyz » 12 Oct 2019 04:06

Getting email that are stopped for type OTHER. Is there a way to have EFA totally bypass the attachment check. Since these are outbound emails they would not be sending viruses but the filenames can sometime be not standard.

Thanks!

After doing some more digging I found the answer out on the Internet:

To disable any checking of file attachments except for viruses, make the following changes in /etc/Mailscanner/Mailscanner.conf:

1. Set "Filename Rules =" to blank.

2. Set "Filetype Rules =" to blank.

3. Set "Archives: Filename Rules =" to blank.

4. Set "Archives: Filetype Rules =" to blank

5. To disable checking of zip attachments, set "Maximum Archive Depth =" to 0.

None of the above will affect scanning for viruses in attachments.
