I really have forgotten wether the list supports attachments!
But a private mail makes me think it does;
when i fix the problem that trailing empty lines are part of data
boxes i promise to use attachments.
And yes, a good mailer converts 'From ' lines to quoted printable
encoding instead of using the '>From ' quoting because it doesn't
modify actual data content. :)
