That's one possibility (I didn't even think about).  I was planning to
make it be a toggle.  either you don't allow the email at all, if
innapropriate content is found, or you allow it and sanitize it (replace
bad words with *'s, etc.) or just allow it but set some sort of header,
etc.  Also, I was thinking about having an email be sent to the admin or
some defined person with either a copy of the email or the pertinent
info so they can potentially talk to the sender, if needed by the
companies policies, etc.
