Just had a message come in with a zipped up virus that should have not been allowed in through normal checks.


-- EVENT MESSAGE --
Skipping check of MIME part 2: unsupported charset, embedded uuencoded content or malformed encoding.


How can we block these?

@_: ORF cannot look into uuencoded parts of emails (see http://vamsoft.com/r?o-hto-limitations). Even if it could, please consider that ORF is designed to filter spam, and not virus carrier emails: this should have been caught by your resident anti-virus product installed on the server monitoring incoming emails.

Even with an anti-virus External Agent configured, ORF should be considered only a first line of defense against email-borne viruses due to its limitations (e.g., it cannot filter internal/outgoing emails), so having an anti-virus product installed on the server is a must.
