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
