Pro-actively dropping all non-priority attachments is not by any means
"security by obscurity". I am not hiding anywhere. I am smashing all
viruses flat before they even have a chance to enter my email AV server. If

will get it anyway.
BTW, I'm damn proud of those letters, worked hard for them and never took a
