The Report: field contain what MailScanenr thought of it... Like "Bo
programs allowed", or "Attempt to hide real filename extension" ... Is
this not enough for you?
Sure, you need look at the message detail (click in the empty box at
the start of the line) ... but that should be it. No need to log on
and trawl the maillog files...:)
