Have you gone mad? Dealing with this stuff at SMTP time is precisely how
you keep your shit working during an major outbreak, when you are managing
high-volume (more than half a million messages per day) transports with
AV/Spam checking and many thousand windows users on the inside.

P.S. I haven't actually been reading this thread, so if you are thinking
that this post totally misses the point, you're probably right.
