Dropping mail entirely...

    I have the latest version of anomy sanitizer up and running and it
    rocks. I am using a configuration that drops attachments of the
    executable type. What I would REALLY like to do is drop those emails
    entirely. Is this possible? Basically my company isn't supposed to get
    executable attachments via email and if they do, it's a virus or trojan.
    And usually we get a dozen or so per day and it eats into our time
    having to find and delete those emails amongst the valid ones. We'd
    like to just drop the email entirely if it has executable attachments,
    keep it if it has other types (but still drop winmail.dat, etc)...

    Thanks for your help!

    This is easy enough to do - just set the ANOMY variable within the
    procmail rule (or within a shell-script wrapper invoked by the procmail
    rule) and you should be fine.

    There shouldn't be any other dependancies to worry about.
