A few corrections: First of all, the "application/octet-stream" MIME type was chosen by your email software, not by our list software :). Listar, the list processor we use, is set up to filter out binary attachments, and application/octet-stream is definitely binary, so the files were filtered out as they should have been. If you want to post REBOL scripts to the list (SHORT ones only, please), then you can do one of three things: - include them inline, i.e. not as an attachment - add them as an attachment of MIME type "text/plain" - add them as an attachment of MIME type "text/x-rebol" As to the .com site and .pl scripts: our site is hosted by Earthlink and indeed uses some .pl scripts. This does not affect email in any way though. All email to is forwarded to (our in-office network), and .pl scripts never touch those mails :). All of our email processing is done by Listar (written in C) and REBOL only. -- Holger Kruse [holger--rebol--com]
