RE: Anybody patching Sendmail to filter _attachments_?
- From: Roeland Meyer (E-mail)

The problem with the new filter API (thanks for leting me know about this guys) is that it requires a full-scale sendmail (to 8.10) upgrade for most of us. Check my headers, I'm at 8.9.3 and I don't see many others newer than that. These are production mail hubs and willy-nilly upgrades aren't allowed there (we just got to 8.9.3, last month), too many potential side-effects (not to mention the lack of full dox).
So far, the procmail approach seems the most generic. However, we have to do it on a "per domain" basis, like JD.
