Subject: [Leica] no virus in Leica Users digest V20 #80

There was no virus in Leica Users Digest v20 #80.  Stanislaw Stawowy played
a little joke on those LUGgers using Outlook or similar mail reading
programs by putting a line in his signature that looks to some mail readers
like the begining of an attachment.  He named the attachment after a popular
Visual Basic virus.  The mail readers affected by the joke placed the rest
of the digest in the "attachment," so many people on the list didn't get to
read more than half of Digest v20 #80.

It wasn't a very good joke, but probably Stanislaw just included this line
in his message without understanding the effect it would have.
