I've been using bogofilter[1], Eric Raymond's Graham-derived spam
filter which threw away base64-encoded data and 90% of all spam that
got past the filter was base64-encoded. Therefore, I think that base64
content really needs to be decoded. I wrote a base64-decoding filter
in Python for it and the problem has gone away.
