MailScanner 4.32.5 on Linux. I have set to strip HTML which 
results f.i. in the following CSS being at the start of each 
ThreatFocus newsletter (don't ask me why these guys send it out 
in HTML :-(

BODY {font-family="Arial"} TT {font-family="Courier New"} 
{padding-left:0.5em; margin-left:0; margin-right:0; 
margin-top:0; margin-bottom:0; 
border-left:"solid 2";} 

Julian, this fixed in a newer version or don't you strip it 
because it's not HTML, strictly speaking? I would prefer having 
any CSS on top of a message stripped as well.
