'batemail' is a script that goes between your MTA (e.g. Sendmail) and your local mailer (e.g. Procmail) to strip potentially nasty attachments from email messages. It takes input on STDIN, removes executable MIME attachments, and gives the result to the local mailer. Taboo attachments are those whose filename ends in one of several "blacklisted" extensions (EXE, VBS, etc.).
