Hi all

Just got an automatic reply to a post I just sent to Midrange-L from one
of the subscriber's mail systems to say it had a virus attached, and it
had been deleted. It didn't say which virus, and as I don't use Windows,
only send plain text and don't include attachments when posting to
Midrange, I can't see how it managed to get so confused. As the list
software strips attachments anyway, I can't see how genuine viruses could
propagate anyway. Does anyone else get these sort of replies?

Regards, Martin
