    Hello,

    I have just installed Proxmox and ran few tests using emailsecuritycheck.net/. They sent 7 mails with virus or spam. 2 of them were blocked by Proxmox but 5 other came into my mailbox.

    Are there settings I must configure / enable to reach 100% - 7 mails blocked ?

    What was not blocked are mails with a harmless .bat files (sometime named "".b"at or simply.bat).

    Thanks in advance !
    Cheers

    Check my advancing thread for better spam detection. For Virus and Attachments you need to improve by yourself, maybe you can also do the switch to Avast as I currently plan to do.

    Why would you want to block harmless files?

    A virus scanner does not block attachment.

    The mention tests are sending simple attachments without virus, so they are passed in a default setup.

    You can adapt your rule system to block such attachments, very powerful.
