I do not want MailScanner to block any file attachments unless they are infected by a virus. How do I do this?

To disable any checking of file attachments except for viruses, make the following changes in WHM > MailScanner > MailScanner Configuration and then click "Change":

1. Set "File Command =" to blank.

2. Set "Filename Rules =" to blank.

3. Set "Filetype Rules =" to blank.

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

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

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

None of the above will affect scanning for viruses in attachments. Virus scanning will be controlled by the rules in /usr/mailscanner/etc/rules/virus.scanning.rules
