.eml File Extensions Suddenly Rejected


Recommended Posts

Okay - I did the standard cpanel upgrades (WHM 9.4.0 cPanel 9.4.1-R64) - and I don't even know if the upgrade is related to this problem - but just recently, one of my users is getting is getting an error bounce when he tries to fwd a message with an .eml attachment.

 

(This is a legitimate .eml attachment...)

 

While I understand that blocking .eml as a file attachment is not a bad thing per se, I can't even find where in the exim configuration that its being told to do this. I can help this one user understand how to work around the message, by opening the fwded eml file and forwarding *that*, I do need to know where its getting this directive and why this suddenly came up.

 

Anyone have any ideas?

 

The error message is below (I added the NOSPAM stuff):

BTW - I realize that this is related to the thread here:

http://www.totalchoicehosting.com/forums/i...p?showtopic=619

 

But I assume that as a dedicated hosting client, those rules do not apply to me, yes?

 

So I suppose the shorter version of the question is: *where* are those options set. I still plan to keep .exe, .pif, .scr, etc blocked.... and quite frankly, I may decide to just tell my user to suck it up and explain the policy...

 

But on the other hand, I also know that for pet-abuse.com, we get emails from so many unsophisticated outside users when they send it case reports. It wouldn't be realistic to expect rthem to learn this - we would wind up losing cases that are reported. Does the file extension block only work on outgoing emails from our server - or does it block incoming as well?
