    Default ZCS 6.0.4: ClamAV detects virus in clean .exe, but only sometimes?

    Hi there,

    I have a quite weird problem here.

    Before I start: My boss _really_ wants to send and receive exe files, and I couldn't convince him otherwise, so, as much as I would like to just let my users host their files somewhere on the internet and only mail a link, that is not possible.

    So, I made sure that amavis doesn't ban .exe extensions and mailed some of them around to make sure it works.

    So today, I got an angry mail in my inbox, saying that he wasn't able to send around .exe files. He attached the error message:

    Our content checker found
        virus: Encrypted.Zip
    in an email to you from probably faked sender:
    claiming to be: <>
    Content type: Virus
    Our internal reference code for your message is 14233-07/XxeEgH3XtiP3
    First upstream SMTP client IP address: []
    According to a 'Received:' trace, the message apparently originated at:
      [], [] []
    Return-Path: <>
    From: "xxxxxxxxxxxxxx" <>
    Message-ID: <>
    User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US; rv:

    Subject: fsfsdfsd
    The message has been quarantined as: virus-XxeEgH3XtiP3
    Please contact your system administrator for details.
    Weird... It wasn't a zip file.

    And I am perfectly able to send around exe files using the Zimbra web client.

    Does this make any sense to you? Maybe there is something wrong with his mail client?

    Would you find the entries in /var/log/zimbra.log for the SMTP transactions and post the details so we can see what Amavis was doing.
