I had one this morning which was disinfected but all I see (in Netscape
Messenger) is a base64 encoded attachment. My guess is that the original
message uses slightly iffy MIME tags and Julian's insertion of the warning
doesn't quite work. I've still got what was left if anyone who understands
MIME or MailScanner better than I wants to look at it?

(Linux, MailScanner 3.04, Sophos, sendmail)
