Thanks for the thoughts, Mark - I figured I could fix it in this area, but I
haven't been successful. First, I added audio/mpg to pass_mime_types and
then also even application/octet-stream - However, even with these added,
the mail just disappears - the whole email, not just the attachment. And
it's not in the spam or virus traps.
Finally, I even noticed that content filtering IS turned off!! So that
means ANYTHING passes, right? I just don't understand why it disappears
without being rejected or serving notice that moderation is needed. (That's
what happens when spam is detected.)
Any other ideas? - John
