There are math, science, and engineering classes that use Matlab.
So in this case, they have a strong case.
I knew I could allow .mat
I have requested a sample .mat file and I am hoping I can modify the
linux (Ubuntu) file command to tell the difference between the uses.
But assuming I can get that to happen, I have not yet found how to
make that useful to MailScanner.
I did suggest the renaming, but it has become a political issue
escalated to administration.
