[Esd-l] Stripping Attachments?

I'm trying to implement the STRIPPED_EXECUTABLE feature. In my
/etc/procmailrc, I put all the MANGLE_EXTENSIONS list in:


Then in /etc/procmailrc, I put the following:

     * ^(To|Cc):.*some at address.com

and omit the file extentions I want to not be stripped. In particular, I
don't want to strip .rtf files for some at address.com, so it is omitted from
the MANGLE_EXTENSIONS list. However when a .rtf file is sent to
some at address.com, it is getting stripped unless I remove that extention
from the STRIPPED_EXECUTABLES="/etc/procmail/stripped" list.

BTW, I have a separate /etc/procmailrc for some at address.com so
other addresses aren't bothered by STRIPPED_EXECUTABLES="/etc/procmail/stripped.

I thought for a file to be stripped, the extention must appear in 

Also, my other dumb question for the day is:

What happens if I list .html files to be stripped? And, what does
'html?' do?
