Circa 2002-Mar-25 09:08:17 -0800 dixit John Hardin:

: Can somebody install an attachment filter on the listserv?

Why?  I'd think that filtering out the yutzes who send viruses to the
list would work better.  Survival of the fittest, where "fit" implies
"not using virus propagation platforms like MS Outlook".

: Please?

Filtering out attachments also filters out:

  - Attached patches
  - Attached config.log files
  - Attached detached OpenPGP signatures

All of which are rather useful here.

You'd be better off finding a mail user agent that doesn't execute the
content it receives (and joining the ranks of the "fit").
