Most ISP's wouldn't be running *anything* on their customer's mail to
sanitize it. They may go as far as virus checking, but they wouldn't defang
MIME or HTML tags.

That still doesn't address the argument whether EXE's should be dropped or
not. We AV scan *and* quarantine EXE's (and BAT/VBS/etc.). Once they've been
checked, if they're super critical, they'll be delivered within a ZIP file
on an as-needed basis.
