    Re: curious

    Yes, I've noticed attachments seeming to appear with some messages lately too. I 
    think it's linked to whether the message is plain text or not - when there's an 
    attachment, there's also a line at the top saying "This message was written in a 
    character set other than your own." and offering the possibility of opening it in a 
    new window if it doesn't display correctly. This is something my webmail does 
    because of its limited display capabilities (I think - things like accents typed on a 
    French computer often turn into something weird). I don't see any attachment 
    when I get the same e-mail at home (using a standard mail software).
    I think it's nothing to be worried about, but no doubt Anselm or one of the 
    numerous other "computer people" (as opposed to dabblers like myself) on this list 
    will give a more accurate explanation.
