Hello Mark,

Thanks for your answer.
I use Debian OS and see there is a backport package available for the file utility.
So I’ve just upgraded from 5.11 to 5.17.

Is there a way to test, without asking and disturbing the original poster to resend, and send the email present in my quarantine through amavis filter ?
