Hi there

Justin Mason asked me to put this in.

With things like the current mp3 spam being upon us, one feature that could be
good to have would be the ability for SA to figure out MIME metadata associated
with a particular email. i.e. "this message has 3 attachments,
1:text/plain:0bytes, 2:text/html:334bytes, 3:audio/mpeg:53535353bytes".

If this information was available, we could create a rule for the current mp3
burst that says that emails with mp3 attachments that also contain a text/plain
attachment that is <10bytes in size is probably spam.

This is trivial in a plugin.

It would be handy to have some kind of generic metadata header that could be matched with header rules. I don't think rules can even check attachment size currently.
