It looks like one of the Microsoft mailers did not properly encode mime

X-Msmail-Priority: Normal
X-Priority: 3
X-Mailer: Microsoft Internet Mail 4.70.1155
Mime-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: application/octet-stream; name="rray6.jpg"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
Content-Description: rray6 (JPEG Image)
Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="rray6.jpg"

Some idiot at Microsoft probably thought everyone used file extensions
to define the content of attachments under mime.

I plan to notify any senders with this disfigured "format" that their
mailer system needs to be updated.


FIle names: I understand the duplicate filenames issue. I also noticed
the mention of an unnamed "security issue" and utilization of a seperate
directory. It that on a per file basis? Do you mean Trojan horses as
attachements? Are "../" not removed from filenames? Sorry, I fail to
understand the point.

Check the message itself.  I bet the content-type for the attachment

See the MIMEFILTERS resource if you want MHonArc to use filenames
listed in the message (make note of the security issues mentioned).
