Someone else is not sleeping either it seems… :)

Is the recorded size in the index 370113? This is what it looks like in the file system:

[root at email01 ~]# ls -l /mail/attachments/70/d0/70d04b12123bfb145983f5a674ee2e65029a4018aff1c6db51993b75f10bf101-117a1a3b06f54251e96200004d877aa0

I guess that 370113 must be the base64 encoded size then?  The actual file looks definitely like plain PDF.
