Sorry to continue on with this thread guys, but the attachments are still
getting stripped. I've added my e-mail domain to the scan.messages.rules in
the form:

FromOrTo:	*@<my domain>	yes

I've checked the permissions on the .rules files and even tried 0777 just to
allow everything to read it. But to no avail (yes, I did remember to restart
MailScanner too).

It is either ignoring this file or something else funky is going on.

In summary - I can't send a mail with an unacceptable (to MailScanner)
attachment, even when I specifically allow it in my scan.messages.rules.

Any way I can debug this further?
