I'd hope not - but thus the reason to drop only attachments over a
certain size -
(3k? 5k?) - to allow digital sig's, but can everything else.

Of course, if someone's digital signature is larger than 5Kb.... I
wouldn't mind
dropping it anyway ;)

Or, possibly, just drop the "large" attachments, but allow the
associated message?
