I apologize for sending the PICT file as an attachment to a list. As the
message itself indicates, this was not what I intended to do--I knew better.
I did get back a message saying that attachments could not be sent to the
list (no surprise there); what surprised me was that some kind of garbled
attachment did get sent anyway--which, I take it, nobody could open.

The digest headed
      18 Apr 2000 to 19 Apr 2000 (#2000-111)
is a humongous 552k long, most of which consists of a monstrous mess of
gibberish attached to Ron's message and headed
     Content-Type: application/octet-stream; name="Poubelle"sucks".pict"
     Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
     Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="Poubelle"sucks".pict"

Is it possible to have the digest 'bot refuse messages beyond a certain size
(20k? 50k?) with a note to the sender?
