This issue definitely exists in the latest source grabbed via which I started playing around with this last week. I manually edited a mail message (which anyone with even rudimentary knowledge can do) and changed the filename in the MIME header. It most definitely did write a fresh .htaccess file into the archive directory.

On another note, a fellow posted that the "ignore" certain MIME types function did use wild cards. Anyone know the syntax? I tried "*" with no luck and the code appeared to be looking for a literal list to compare against whatever was stripped from the MIME header in the message.
