    I did it in a zimba 8.0.2, but when I try to send a .rar archive, it show this: ‘550 5.7.1 Attachment type not allowed. File “hosts.rar” has the unacceptable extension “rar”‘

    What can I do?

      Hello Kevin,

      Can you put all error message from your zimbra.log when you send attachment with .rar extension.
