Sorry, my mistake, didn't make myself as clear as I should have.  All those 
'notify [God]'s should have been 'optionally notify [God]', indicating that 
[God] has some control over what filetypes he/she wishes to be notified about.

APU, speaking only for myself, I want to know about everything that people 
outside my organization are trying to send to my lUsers, if only so that I 
have a stack of paper to beat them [the lUsers] with when they whine about 
defanging or I demand they clear out their mailboxes every once in a while.

I really like Bjarni's idea of a summary mail at the end of each day, 
possibly using a mailing list to handle the mail notification, but of 
course that means running something [Majordomo?] to actually handle the 
list. Not (necessarily) your problem tho...

Would anyone want functionality that does a verbose notify of a mail if any 
of it's attachments were interfered with?
