    Because I can't configure procmail?
1: I can configure procmail.
2: I choose not to because I use Exim's filtering
3: I can configure Exim's filtering.
4: None of which matters because I operate my own connection on a 33.6k
modem which means the file is ALREADY received before I get a chance to
filter it.

    When there exists a simple method.  There are several such methods which
are PROPER.  But if the IT department doesn'y allow them, tough.  If the ISP
doesn't allow them, change ISPs.  But use the proper protocol.  That is what
is known as playing nice in the playground with the other kids.
