    It's not supposed to have a '|' sign - that changes the rule from
    blocking (DOS/Win style wildcards):

     winmail.dat OR *.exe, *.vbs, etc. OR *.exe.gz, *.exe.bz2, *.exe.bz2.gz etc.

    into a rule blocking:

     winmail.dat OR *.exe, *.vbs. etc OR *.gz, *.bz2, etc.

    Your modification banns all Bzip2 or GNU-zipped files, which I suspect isn't
    what you really meant to do. :-)

    If that part of the rule is causing problems for some reason, I'd
    recommend simply deleting the GNU-zip part, like so:

    file_list_1 = (?i)(winmail\.dat
    file_list_1 += |\.(exe|vb[es]|c(om|hm)|bat|pif|lnk|doc.lnk|s(ys|cr))
    file_list_1 += )$
