ANNELIDA: Policy on attachments

Hi folks,

Attachments (word docs or images) sent to ANNELIDA are stripped off at the 
net.bio.net e-mail gateway. If you send one that is what will happen, even if 
I let it through as moderator.  

In practice I will usually try to open text-based attachments and convert them 
to plain text for incorporation in the body of the e-mail.  The result may or 
may not be pleasing to the sender.  However, in my experience attachments are 
unecessary in 100% of cases where text is the medium of information in a 
message sent to a listserver.   

Attachments may contain viruses or may be in a format unusable by many 
recipients.

Images and complex text you wish to distribute should be placed online in html 
or pdf via a website and the link advised in the e-mail.  

Thanks,

Moderator ANNELIDA
