Hi Croc:

I think I am right in saying that the attachment you see is what happens
when someone sends an RTF or HTML formatted email to the list and the
list is set to send text emails; it attaches the "signature" file to the

I could be wrong, I'm no expert, but experiment with changing the mail
format of both the sender and the list and see what happens (and let me
know when you find out <g>).

First, my name, or I should say nick name is Croc.  I am new to the
list.  I run a couple of Mailman driven mailing lists.  I am baffled by
some of the features/options.  I joined this list because I am hoping to
have some things simplified for me.  And who knows :), maybe I will be
of help to others.

Todays guestion is about attachments.  It seems when subscribers send
email to the list they have an attachment.  It shows up as something
like ATT00019.txt(280 B) Inside the attachment is  the list name, the
email address to write to and the address of the info page for the list.

I look forward to learning more about how the program works and getting
to know some of you.
