	That's tough.  Uuencoded files aren't included in nice things 
like MIME encoding, or have obvious headers that you can match on.

	They might be caught by things like Anomy (see 
<http://freshmeat.net/projects/theanomymailsanitizer/>) or MIMEDefang 
(see <http://freshmeat.net/projects/mimedefanger/>), but I can't be 

	You may have to implement a custom mail filter that looks for 
things like Uuencoded attachments, and then delete them.  Tools like 
Anomy and MIMEDefang would probably be a good place to start.
