Not answering your question as I think it might be more complex as the #
of parts might not be available from MIME::Parser or returned from the
parse instance. I'm sure there is a solution but it's not the output of
a simple variable.
David, might be nice to make the MIME::Parser return undef and set a var
for max parts found so the discard/bounce/etc. action can state more
information like found 250 parts and 50 parts allowed.
md_syslog('warning', "DEBUG: MaxMIMEParts found
I found I couldn't use MaxMIMEParts. From memory, I believe I found
that Digests for mailing lists from Mailman could use a lot of MIME
Parts to attach all the emails. I only notated this message below and
I was already at 100!
#DISABLED TO ALLOW MAILMAN TO WORK
#$MaxMIMEParts = 100;
