I don't use sendmail, so I can't send you sendmail queue files. I can
send you postfix files, but that should not be necessary since a message
is trivial to create. I have attached message.zip which contains
message.txt which is a raw message that shows the problem.
In this case, there are two attached files "Motion & Order.txt .doc"
and "Motion & Order.doc .doc" which are reported by MailScanner as
"Motion %26 Order.doc: and "Motion %26 Order-1.doc"
This depends on the & in the file name and the exact munging/dropping of
the first extension also depends on how many spaces are between the two
