Thanks for that update.

Assuming my use case need to do test/scan on attachments as well, thereby I
set a large size in the config file, say 5 MB for example.  I also
understand that it will take few more seconds to test/scan.

How does SA scan binary attachments like .doc, .docx, .rtf, .xls, .zip, etc.
in that case?
