I have this in my MailScanner.conf which I think was put in by my

# IE explorer spoofing
uri             IE_VULN         /%([01][0-9a-f]|7f).*@/i
score           IE_VULN         100.0
describe        IE_VULN         Internet Explorer vulnerability

I think this is stopping some legit mail and I cant find much regarding
this from google. Does anyone else use this? is it (still) necessary?
