WHM/cPanel might trigger a bounce such as the following:
2023-03-14 20:11:01 1pc96v-0007q4-15 cancelled by system filter: This message has been rejected because it has\na potentially executable attachment "My trusted forward.eml"\nThis form of attachment has been used by\nrecent viruses or other malware.\nIf you meant to send this file then please\npackage it up as a zip file and resend it.
Point is probably
.eml should be trusted, but if there is an
exe in a
.eml you could be harmed. But since you probably want to have less support you might be tempted to update this filter.
It’s entirely possible and has been discussed at the forums here.
The steps are to create a new Exim filter file, but first backup the existing Exim filter file.
cp -p /etc/cpanel_exim_system_filter /etc/cpanel_system_filter_new
Edit the files, lines 50, 61, 78, 89
50: if $header_content-type: matches 61: if $header_content-type: matches 78: if $message_body matches 89: if $message_body matches
eml and remove it. Be careful.
Go into WHM and the Exim configuration manager. Search for
system filter file
Choose the new file that you have just modified, and press
Updating “System Filter File” from “/etc/cpanel_exim_system_filter” to “/etc/cpanel_system_filter_new”. “System Filter File” was updated.
.eml attachments won’t be blocked.
