How to allow ZIP files to be sent to your mailing list

Mail-List.com will alway reject email messages with the following types of attachments

BAT BTM CMD COM CPL DLL EXE LNK MSI PIF PRF REG SCR VBS URL

So if somebody emails an attachment called workday.bat, that message will be rejected back to the sender.

In addition, Mail-List.com will remove attachments with the following types

7Z ACE ARJ BZ BZ2 CAB GZ GZIP ISO JAR LZH TAR UUE XZ Z ZIP

These are various forms of compressed files and folders.  That is, the one file attached, expands to many files.  These sorts of files can be difficult to scan for viruses.

So if somebody emails an attachment called workday.zip, the email message will go to the mailing list, but not the attachment.

You can adjust what compressed files you want to allow.

For example, by removing ZIP above, ZIP files will start to pass through.
