Not really much room for quibbling is there?

Whether we are individually using Pine, Eudora, Netscape Communicator,
MS Mail or any other email reader it would be very nice if those with
the .vfc attachments would turn them off when emailing to the list.
On many lists I am on sending unsolicited attachments is grounds for
permanant suspension from the list. I personally don't care what you or
anyone else uses for email but as Les said it's annoying as hell to have to
periodically clear all of those attachments out of my attachments file.

BTW I *am* connected to the Internet 24 hrs a day and I personally find
Eudora Pro to be the clearly superior email program, but that's MHO.
