Once again-- this attachment has a virus (WM or XL Macro virus, according to SAM). Perhaps you should review your policy regarding attachments??

As I understand it, this is a Microsoft Word virus, so IMHO only persons using this software are affected. These persons shouldn't even read the mail.

We are very sorry. This post made it to the news feed by accident anyway. In fact I sent a reply to the sender of the original post, which informed hir, that we don't accept attachments. By accident this reply triggered sending the post to the feed.

We are working at technical means, to prevent attachments on the feed in the future.

BTW: Jason: Thanx a lot!
