I have a pretty vanilla DA system that I'm playing with
email on..

The default settings seem to have a conflict with forwards.
If you attempt to forward as an attachment you get
a bounce such as:

A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

aaaaa@bbbbbb.net
This message has been rejected because it has
a potentially executable attachment "Re: [info 3040] Serial console setup /
billing.eml"
This form of attachment has been used by
recent viruses or other malware.


Should this actually work? Or should DA just turn off
the forward as attachment feature? (what is triggereing
this? mime type or just .eml? should it be .txt?)

Can the attachment be recieved on normal accounts aswell or is the problem with forwarders only..... i'm thinking it may be spamassassin working there :p

Hello,

That would be caused by the system filter. It blocks potentially hazardous attachments, but can be turned off by commenting out (adding # in front of)
Code:
# system_filter = /etc/system_filter.exim
In the /etc/exim.conf and then restarting exim:
Code:
/sbin/service exim restart
