For anyone who saw this in their mailbox, can I recommend you encourage the
sysadmin of your mail server to install Mailscanner, free open source
software from Southampton that removes email viruses and spam

We've been using it for years and it's very effective. As a result my copy
of the offending mail had the attachment automatically deleted, the file
was labelled as spam and so was automatically trashed by my filter.

This way we can all spend more time reading the real list messages.
