ISPs That See Camera Phone Images As Viruses

I’ve never heard of this before, and I’m not entirely convinced that it’s for real, but over at, they’ve turned up an article from the Independent, where someone comments (after the actual article) that many ISPs are interpreting images taken from camera phones as viruses and deleting them when someone sends the image to an email address. No proof is given, and if it were really the case, I would have thought more people would be complaining. So, if anyone has any more evidence of this actually happening, I’d appreciate hearing about it.
