And what is the problem? If you want to know why Content filtering is
not removing this, it is because this is not a separate MIME part
which is all that Content filtering deals with.

This 'attachment' is plain text uuencoded data within the text/plain
message. If you don't want this on your list, you will have to pevent
the sender (an automated system?) from sending them or not allow this
sender to post.
