Your message is not clear. Do you intend to send such a message to the ADS-L
email list? Or to individual members? In either case, I would like to
discourage you from sending a Word document as an enclosure, to me or to
anyone. It's unnecessary. Why not just paste the text of the document into
the body of an email? It's a smaller message, easier to read, less likely to
carry a virus and readable by everyone (because not everyone has or uses
Word, you know). You will probably find a good number of mail servers will
stop your message cold because of the attachment, anyway, and not only
because of spam-prevention measures.
