    This should actually be easy enough to do - up to a point at any

    Instead of an antivirus program "disinfecting" an attachment, you
    would simply invoke a shell script which compresses the file,
    possibly using the Unix "zip" tool which is (as you requested)
    winzip compatible.

    The problem is, there is at the moment no way for the
    scanner/compressor to tell Anomy to change the attachment's file
    name - so the .zip ending would be missing.

    Hmmmmm....! :-)
