this is so bizarre!

if i send the simplest mail there is with only 1 charater the character: 
_*é*_   , no attachsments at all. somehow it matches the filetype 
EXE/COM rules and i get the usual bounce back:

"Warning: This message has had one or more attachments removed
Warning: (the entire message).
