Post:

I believe there are several way Netscape mailer may be sending attachments on
Dick's email.
In Preferences:
Messages:
By default forward messages "inline"or "as attachment" - should be
inline!
Identity: "Attach my personal card to messages (as a Vcard) - should not be
checked.

I never open attachments unless they have been checked for viruses and I have
been notified ahead to expect them.
