> I've released 4.79.5, which I would gratefully appreciate you testing.

Hi Julian,

I've installed version 4.79.5 on a RH5 box with perl 5.10.1 and have 
been running it against our production e-mail traffic and I noticed this 
morning that taint errors still are happening when processing TNEF 
attachments.  This is the line which is output when running a single 
message through in debug mode:

11:17:22 Insecure dependency in rename while running with -T switch at 
/usr/local/MailScanner/lib/MailScanner/ line 357.

Let me know if there is any more information you need or if there is 
some other patch I may be missing.

thanks much,
