Please check the box in the Enroute send slip to send email messages as text
before mailing to the list (or, I suggest, anywhere else).

If you do not, your email creates an attachment which consists of text
garbage. While this has the minor effect of adding garbage to the list, the
real problem is that it breaks the digest at this point for those of use who
use Outlook Express for Mac and the rest is lost to us. Please do not do
this again.
