This is about your last line, about attachments

I have asked you about an attachment problem before and have also asked
other people.

I am less fussed about intentional attachments (except big graphics which
bring everything to a halt) than I am about [what are said to be]
UNINTENTIONAL attachments - in many cases the message itself also arrives
as an attachment with the same name as the original message

This is very annoying as I then have to go into Filemaker and delete it. I
have Microsoft 3.1, Eudora Pro and whatever else comes in the Deakin
student package if all that is relevant. I should have thought it was
something to do with the sending end rather than my system as receiver,
since it does not affect all messages and affects the same people every
time. However Richard Dilena tried to solve it at his end and couldn't find
anything that would cause it at his end.  Sometimes there are quite a few
and as many people use names for their messages which are similar to others
it is a big waste of time looking at them to make sure I am not deleting
REAL attachments by mistake.

I wish there was away I could avoid getting attachments of this kind
