Hello Iain and fellow professionals,
I sent a text file as an attachment to this list as well as Tekcom. In
Tekcom, the attachment was correctly displayed in PINE. Whereas in this
list there was the usual message about MIME and in PINE it showed a lot
of junk to my dismay. The worst part is it put the attachment in the body
of the email.
I quickly sent a Sorry for this "mess". I think all list owners should
provide information in FAQ as to the type of attachment accepatable and
Best wishes to all
