Take a look at http://www.impsec.org/email-tools/procmail-security.html

If the great work I have just had the chance to glance an eye over is by
the very same John Hardin I have had the honour and pleasure to get to
know a little thru the colourful, entertaining, and yet in depth posts
on this list, please accept at first my worm appreciation of the work
done in-

Enhancing E-Mail Security With Procmail
the E-mail Sanitizer

A minor detail- re: Introduction at

2) There's a minor inaccuracy in a reference [unless actually referring
to that very version of the product mentioned by the Author] in the
fourth chapter -- right after the eight links to Symantec's Web page:

3) The present and most recent version is "NAV 2002" with "NAV 2003" to
come (with included on-line protection for IM).

4) Presenting the product as, e.g. "NAV 200x" will comfortably allow
being work-shy regarding constant updating of information.

Once again very best thanks for sharing the information and useful
pieces of advice. Please, keep up the good work.
