Another very weird thing is the the limited headers on the mail that was 
successfully delivered with the attachment to the list:

Date: Mon, 16 May 2005 21:29:30 -0500
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: multipart/mixed;
X-Priority: 3
X-MSMail-Priority: Normal
X-Mailer: Microsoft Outlook Express 6.00.2900.2180
X-MimeOLE: Produced By Microsoft MimeOLE V6.00.2900.2180

Any comments about the Content Type?  And I'm missing my usual headers from 
ClamAV and SpamAssassin for this mail only!  Oh well, this is getting a 
little disjointed (my fault).  I'll report back if and when things clarify a 
little.  - John
