Just another note: If you are posting to this list, please be a bit 
careful about the fact that a lot of readers of this list use antivirus 
software on their mail server. While all mail to the list is scanned (by a 
virus scanner, and manually by Wayne or myself), sometimes people add 
content that is picked up as a virus by some of the simpler scanners. Try 
to 'obfuscate' such signatures...

Sometimes, they are hard to spot however... For example this post:
http://www1.dshield.org/pipermail/dshield/2001-November/001937.html
lists the 'badtrans' mail headers. I am getting a ton of notifications 
from various virus filters that detect this post as a virus :-/

Maybe a better way in this particular case would be to add a '>' a the 
beginning of each line of the header...

  Anyway...
