    Question [SOLVED] How to handle "BANNED contents" emails ?

    Please forgive the newbie question. I have searched and couldn't find an answer.

    I have recently set up Zimbra for the first time, and have never dealt with amavisd before.

    On the fourth day of running a pilot I received an email notification

    Code:
    BANNED contents (.exe,.exe-ms,photo.exe) in mail TO YOU from <blah@blahblah.com>
    It informs me that the email is in quarantine.

    I can look on the /opt/zimbra partition and see the file in the directory.

    My question is - How do I handle this file from here ?

    The amavisd documentation I have found on the web refers to a utility to release the email (amavisd-release) but that does not seem to be part of the Zimbra distribution.

    Is there an alternative tool?

    Is there something else I need to do?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello, I have used the instruction on this post before for releasing a quarantined email and it worked fine for me.

    I had to add this lines at the top of the quarantined mail
    X-Quarantined-From: <sender@domain.com>
    X-Quarantined-To: <recipient@domain.com>

    and then

    ./infect /opt/zimbra/amavisd/quarantine/virus-?????

    this works for me

    Thanks. A little cumbersome for multiple files, but it does work.

    NOTE: for anyone else trying this method, the two X-headers need to be the first and second lines added to your email files.

    If not, you get a message indicating that they don't exist, and that message has the header name misspelled which leads to even more confusion.
