The Anomy Sanitizer

http://mailtools.anomy.net/
Blocks e-mail based security risks

The Anomy mail sanitizer is a filter designed to block email-based security risks, such as trojans and viruses. It can scan an arbitrarily complex RFC822 or MIME message and remove or rename attachments, truncate unusually long MIME header fields and sanitize HTML by disabling Javascript, etc. It uses a single-pass pure Perl MIME parser, which is more efficient and precise than similar programs. It also has built-in support for third-party virus scanners. The sanitizer realizes that just because a message contains an infected attachment doesn't mean that the rest of it shouldn't be delivered. Anomy tries to interrupt the normal flow of communication as little as possible, and inform the user of any changes that are made.
