Thanks, Derek. Removing attachments will also cut down on the number of
virus notifications.

Have you noticed how many really stupid mailer daemons are configured to
return everything to the purported sender - even attachments that the daemon
says are viruses! Real nice, 'specially since a lot of viruses these days
spoof the return address. Well, enough of this off-topic rambling.

Which attachment types are now allowed? Do you strip strictly by
content-type, or do you look at the extension of the file?
