How to release emails that are held due to a password protected file (attachment)?
Even whitelist does not help.

The default setting is to block password-protected archives, you can change this in the mailscanner config file.

Run the following from the console:

Code: Select all

sed -i "/^Allow Password-Protected Archives/ c\Allow Password-Protected Archives = yes" /etc/MailScanner/MailScanner.conf
service mailscanner reload
Or manual change it by edditing the config:
- edit /etc/MailScanner/MailScanner.conf
- Find the option Allow Password-Protected Archives,
- and change to: Allow Password-Protected Archives = yes
- reload mailscanner

Alternatively you could install Webmin (and mailscanner plugin). With Webmin you can configure Mailscanner, postfix, spamassasin, mysql and lots of other stuff through te webinterface.
