Hi everyone

Could you all do a quick check of your email program?  There have been some
very weird messages coming through this morning - long lists of addresses in
the TO: or CC: fields, and often just more addresses in the body.  Messages
that have too much in the headers invariably bounce.

There have also been quite a few messages sent in marked-up or formatted
text. These have all bounced. Please remember that we now only allow PLAIN
TEXT messages on birding-aus.

There have been some warnings about viruses, possibly recirculating hoaxes.
It looks as though a number of these messages have been sent automatically
rather than at the choice of the sender, so you might like to check what's
happening on your computer or network.
