[I tried sending this once before, but it seems to have been eaten somewher
along the way.  If you get this message twice my apologies.]

All righty.  I modified the footers that were causing those attachment
problems for some, so hopefully those problems are a thing of the past.

However, after reading over the RFC delineating the Quoted-Printable
encoding, there is still the possibility of the same problem reoccuring due
to a regular message.  It seems the Q-P encoding is extremely fragile.
Anytime there is an equals sign follwed by two characters that fall into the
hex character set (i.e. 0-9 and A-F) Q-P will think that's an endoding meant
for it to interpret.  Pretty brain dead encoding, if you ask me.  But it's
what we gotta put up with.

So anyway - the attachment problems caused by the footers have been taken
care of.  If anyone is still having problems with attachments, let me know:

a) Who sent the message
b) The subject line
c) The date / time stamp on the message

Send these to me via *private mail*, not on list.  I do try and check my
email on a regular basis, at *least* once a day.  And I *will* get back to
you.  Sometimes it might take a day or two, but I will.

I was thinking it was only a problem because the list server was appending
non-QP compatible text on a message that was mime-tagged as using QP
formatting.  A message originating on a non-QP system may contain "invalid"
"=" constructs, but it won't be tagged as being QP-format in the first
place, either.  So things should be OK?
