A funny thing came a cross my eyes...
if your using file v5.14 to detect executeables and you put this "锘"
chinese charakter at the beginning of a text-file it will be detected as
DOS-Executeable (COM). I'm wondering if i schould upgrade to file 5.24.
Are there known issues with file v5.24 and Mailscanner?
# file msg-17333-4.txt
msg-17333-4.txt: DOS executable (COM)
# file --version
