Yes, agreed.

I should have been more specific. It looks to me there is a problem with my
mail provider I use for this and other lists, but I only realized what it is
after reading your post. The line break in inserted after their AV message. 
I don't know whether their AV is tripping over ClamAV or if it's some other
error but it does seem to be in their AV code.

Since then I also received a mangled post from Ludo. So it's happening somewhat
frequently and *seems* to be related to this list but may also be caused by
something at zoho. I reported the issue to them after your email since I
have no option to turn off their virus scanning on my account with them.

Good question. Thanks again, Mark.
