I have a Mailscanner site and I want to deny all html attachments but permit html emails.

AFAIK there is difference between html attachments and html mail: Content-Disposition: attachment;

I tried to configure Filetype Rules = %etc-dir%/filetype.rules.conf adding:

deny    html        No HTML attachments No HTML attachments allowed

But this blocks also html emails

Any hints?

This is a known issue with Mailscanner, it doesn't make distinction between inline and attachment entities. You may want to submit an issue: https://github.com/MailScanner/v5
