Need some help with sending samples!!!
« on: August 17, 2005, 12:15:30 PM »
Hi to all  :)

I have a little problem here. Everytime when I try to send samples to virus[at]avast[dot]com I get the following error:

An Error occurred while sending mail. The mail server responded: 5.7.0 Illegal Attachment a2sm23468rnf. Please check the massage and try again.

I am using gmail.com account. All archives were password protected. The mail client is Thunderbird.

Thanks,  :)

Pack suspicious or infected file with 7-zip (www.7-zip.org).
GMail doesn't restrict 7z archives and also doesn't check it's content.
Another way is RAR archive (www.rarsoft.com)
