I just sent a message to myself with an attachment.  It was a copy of the PuTTY program but with the name claire.doc.scr.  Sanitizer picked it up perfectly, quarantined and sent the appropriate messages.  

I have my procmailrc set to have SpamAssassin scan first and Sanitizer second.  What appears to have happened is that SA broke the message...nothing was actually attached to the email so there wasn't really anything for sanitizer to sanitize.  

Still I'm curious as to how this message works...or was intended to work.  Was this "file" embedded witin the email, or was it an attachment at one point.  SA doesn't, AFAIK, strip or remove attachements.  How did all of this happen?
