The irony of all this never ceases to amaze me. Here am I -- and
others on this list -- using mail clients that aren't vulnerable to
viruses on operating systems that also aren't vulnerable to viruses.
And yet we expend a lot of time looking after mail systems that
attempt to reject incoming viruses. Mail systems here alert us if
they receive one from an internal host so we can get that host
cleaned & disinfected.

This is all unbelievably altruistic of us...perhaps our Nobel peace
prizes will arrive in tomorrow's post...
