I tried sending an existing ".tgz" file, no different.

I am not aware of any way to do that. In fact they don't mention
processing mail for spam although they may do so. I don't see anything
listed under events in Firestarter so it looks like it's not blocked there.
I just haven't been able to find anything but I would like to see the
message that is supposed to be sent. Don't know how to get that?
