I'm using Edora 3.1 an Mac PowerBook 540c. I do not get the truncated
digests by I do see little winmail.dat files lying on my carpet after
downloading some APD's. I do wish that people would just send plain old
text to the APD list as I get tired of cleaning up after those not yet
housebroken. It's yet another example of a Mircosoft software kluge that
inconviences everyone. In a few years they will fix it and the unwashed
will herald it as yet another great Mircosloth innovation.
