Peter, he's not sending attachments in the usual sense - he's using
an HTML emailer, which is sending both text and HTML version of the
message to the list - Eudora is reading the text version and saving
the HTML version. In pine, all I see are notices of MIME attachments,
so I usually just delete them without reading the message at all.

Email is about bare bones communication. Michael, get a better mailer
(Eudora used to be my favorite, but I've gone back to pine when they
started shipping 16MB worth of MSIE/OS upgrades with what used to be
a 4MB mail package) or learn how to configure the one you're using so
that it doesn't annoy the rest of the world with needless formatting
