Can DCC identify attachment types?

We use mimedefang to drive DCC and spamassassin, and run about 250,000
messages per day per server with low load.  This includes doing clamav virus
scan, and using a LOT of custom rule sets on spamassassin - we use all the
sets from rulesemporium, as well as RBL checks.

The new built-in perl interpreter makes a huge difference.  You do want to
have enough ram to put the working directory for mimedefang and spamassassin
on a TMPFS (ram-disk).  

Let me know if you want more detailed info.

It looks as if it would work, although I'm concerned about the
perl code for a high-volume e-mail server.
