I see, matchers.
Yes I think the (attachment) file name detection would be the first step
in email virus protection in James. But Ideally, the matcher should work
by reading a regex, so that anything that has, say, ".pif" would get a
match. It would be easy to define, something like "*pif", or
"*[pP][iI][iF]"; well, I might be wrong. BTW, I'm currently downloading
jakarta-regexp from the CVS; maybe I'd have some time to implement regex
in HostIs, SenderHostIs, or the HasAttachmentNamed matcher.

Sure, we really need regex support in the matchers.

I see, I'll try that.
