I'd like to make this very clear. THERE ARE NO VIRUSES BEING SPREAD BY THIS 
LIST! We purposefully strip out all attachments for that very reason. In 
order for the virus to infect your computer, you need to open the 
attachment. Since the attachments no longer exist on the mail sent from 
this list, it is impossible for any member to become infected from 
receiving or reading those messages.

Private mail, however, is a totally different situation. The safest 
procedure is to never open an attachment on email and make sure that you 
have a virus scanner running with all the most current updates.
