Yes, notwithstanding the fact that in a MIME multipart message, there is
often no clear understanding of which MIME parts are the 'message
itself' vs. an 'attachment'.

MailScanner looks at each MIME part individually without regard to what
some MUA or person thinks is the message or an attachment, and if it is
a text/html part and contains script tags, deals with that part
according to the applicable Allow Script Tags value.
