I've searched the archives and couldnt find anything exactly like this, so here goes ....

This is a part of an email that I receive regularly;

Is this not being picked up because its base64 encoded ? 

What is the best way to deal with this sort of spam ?

I'm running Mailscanner 4.42.9 on Centos 4.1 i386.
