[aprssig] WHY all the attachments?

Outlook 2000 here. I too send only in plain text, but others do not. O2K
sees RTF and HTML as attachments and come as "ATT.TXT" files.

Since I send ALL attachments directly to the delete files folder, I never
see them and I am not open to attack.

I do have another email address when I am expecting a file.

So, I guess that the moral of this story is; if you want me to see your
question, use plain text only, never include an attachment, and it will end
up in my APRS folder.

Outlook 2003 here, most list messages have no attachemnts, those that
do, it's often the list signetuare, or an antivirus statement, or the
result of how the message was originaly sent to the list.  I believe you
can change the list's behaviour yourself, from the reminder message that
arrived today...

I only send "Plain Text" messages, when directly attached to our
Exchange server by our netowrk, if I connect from home, then it sends in
HTML.  I've not yet found a way round that "feature"...
