administrative stuff.]


Lumbricus, check your system for viruses --- we just got a mail message
that appears to be addressed by you, but is obviously something that's not
written by you.  At first glance, it looks like virus email.  Can you
double check your system?

Folks, should we institute something like a filter on attachments?  The
new version of the mailing system software does offer the option of
automatically stripping all non-ascii MIME attachments; I hadn't enabled
it yet, but am considering doing so.  There is also an option for
automatically stripping HTML from messages.

What do people think about this?  If there are no objections, I'll start
enabling the MIME/HTML filtering to prevent anything like this happening.
