Hi Julian.

I have found that the FixMaliciousSubjects sub in is cutting
of non-exploit subject lines. These mails are sent from Lotus Notes server.
I have not seen this happening when receiving mail from other servers.

Here is a header-snip of one such email:

From: yy at
<OF5E723B86.F88E8AE4-ON00256E2F.0034C5CC-00256E2F.0034FB02 at LocalDomain>
Subject: Re: WinCABAS:
 =?us-ascii?Q?=2E=2E?= =?iso-8859-1?Q?=ED__cabas=2C_G=F3l?=
To: xx at

I have disabled these three lines in to let these subjects
through, but a more elegant soulution would be nice :)

#  $newsubject =~ s/\s{20,}.*\..{1,4}\s*$//; # Delete file extensions at end
of filename
#  $newsubject =~ s/\s*$//g;
#  $newsubject =~ s/\s{20,}//g;

Thanks in advance !
