$WORK sent everyone a similar email about renaming .zip files.
I think the concern here is not that the mechanism can be bypassed,
but that $WORK is telling everyone how to do it.

I use a procmail recipe near the bottom in my personal email accounts
that stuffs all inbound html email into my maybespam file.  It's almost

Your 2MB limit would block plenty of the emails I get at work informing
me that the freezer will be cleaned out Friday or it's someone's
birthday/anniversary/retirement and Cake Will Be Served in all
their multi-color clip art glory.  At least the cake is pretty good
and the freezer cleaning one had penguins.
