Hi again,

with reference to my earlier post.

I have the following error messages in my procmail.log
Checking document "test.doc" for stripping
Checking document "test.doc" for poisoning
Mangling executable filename "test.doc"
Err: Decoding; No such file or directory - mimencode?

Exactly what file or directory does the error message refer to?
