Porn msg identification?

   Our IT director was ranting about this same legal-problems sexual
harrassment article last week, and I told him that MailScanner already
had a great solution: the striphtml option for spam.  You designed this
option to strip off the porn pix from spam, right?  Anyway, he hated the
idea, so I turned off the striphtml option, which I had been using.
You can't win...
