Help Strip / Remove attachments (Replace with TXT file if Possible)
I hope you can help me out...

What I would like to do is Replace a attachment of certain types IE. EXE, BAT, COM etc with a file such as ATTACHMENT_BLOCKED.TXT which would explain that the file met our blocking restrictions.

I'm trying to find a solution using PROCMAIL or SPAMASSASSIN but to no avail so far.

I'm a newbie in a sense and procmail is making sense but still very cryptic to me so far.

I'm currently using Sendmail as my MTA and Qpopper for my Pop3 checker on a SuSE 9.0 distro.

Does anyone have any thoughts or tips on how to go about this?
I've Googled my #$@ off but can't find what i'm trying to do.

So far i've come up with this to completely remove the file if it has a EXE file for example.

:0 B
* name=.*\.(exe)

But this does not deliver the message or anything so it's not what i'm lookign for.

Thanks alot!

Holy thread resurrection batman... This is a old post, looking at it I see a good 6 years ago.

Anyway, long story short I got it working at the time, I used MimeDefang you can look for it here :

That system was replaced with an Exchange server pushed down from corporate office and i'm in a domino shop now but didn't want you to be left hanging.
