You're speaking of Office documents?

The scanning and poisoning of scanned documents is independent of
whether the document attachment appears in the MANGLE list. If you
omit the extension (e.g. "doc") from the MANGLE list, it will still be
scanned and will be poisoned if the scanner score exceeds the limit
you've set. Read the configuration page where it talks about not
mangling office documents for locally-originating mail.

  Failure to plan ahead on someone else's part does not constitute an
  emergency on my part.
