A possible Strategy to secure this
Authored by: ekc on May 12, '06 12:06:38PM

Sounds like a good idea. It would buy you a lot of security for only a few extra lines in the script. You can call openssl to generate the checksums, and the same tool can even encrypt your file attachments to keep eavesdroppers out.

In theory, an alternative would be to recognize certain digital signatures and only respond to those, but unfortunately, I don't think there is any AppleScript support for this in Mail. SOX's home-grown approach is probably the easiest to implement.
