If you have to ask that then you really shouldn't even be thinking of 
"playing with it" should you?

I suggest that this is an example of a very good reason to _not_ allow 
messages with such attachments (though having the mail server 
distinguish them from other "possibly acceptable" atatchments such as C 
or PERL PoCs and the like would be non-trivial...).
