I suspect most of these are zapped by my sendmail filters looking for 
attachments that meet certain signatures and rejecting them.

You'll note that most of these attachments are 30kb or 79kb zip files.

I automatically destroy any screen saver files, bat files or com files.  If 
someone has a need to send them to me, not only will it have been arranged 
prior, but they'd be smart enough to use ftp and upload it to my ftp server :)

Jan, keep on deleting :)  Maybe add a filter to your Email proggy to just 
drop them into oblivion?
