some people just want, some just need attachments. I think that if a filter
(word plugin is used with different meaning in SA) would preprocess/convert
those attachments to text, SA could just run standard rules over it and
catch unwelcome words, do BAYES check over it, etc etc.
So the words "dear winner" would match no matter if stored in text, HTML,
..doc (tnef), gif or pdf ...
Is there any such plan for SA?
