Ok, no response so I assume that no one else had this problem and that I've
done something stupid in my MailScanner settings? What is the default Max
attachments allowed in more recent versions? What should the setting be to
prevent the special issue digest getting caught in future (I've upped mine
to 220 for now)?

Any hints gratefully accepted,
