I guess I meant catch it before even farming it off to mod_imap (though I
agreed, mod_imap should be fixed to not core dump no matter what is thrown
at it).  I.e., the server says to itself "okay, I'm supposed to include Oops, I can't do that, because isn't text or a CGI
script".  If the list of "acceptible" included content isn't difficult to
come up with, then that seems like a proper path to go down....
