Re: Why a digest? was attacks

If there are Eudora plugins for the Mac to do it, you should be able to 
find Eudora plugins for windows too. Eudora runs on either platform -- you 
do not have to use outlook on windows, there are others :-) You avoid a lot 
of viruses/worms by not using outlook too. Outlook (maybe not outlook 
express) can run local filters and it should be possible to write a "digest 
splitter" for it. I would bet if you searched for something like "+outlook 
+digest +separating" or something similar you could probably find some 
tools that could do this. Friendly local sysadmins may be willing to have 
their mailserver split the digests for you too since on a typical UNIX mail 
server it's not very difficult to modify mail if you know how.

And Erik, don't you go bashing Pine now :-) I've been using it for a looong 
time too. Pine and Lynx. All these new fangled picture-pages made me try 
Netscape years ago, except it was Mosaic then.... Hmmm... ;-)
