Yes, though I think it has also to do with the specific form of the headers
that the Sun mailer uses to annotate attachments - some other types of
attachment seem to be handled OK. For various reasons, it's not worth my
spending too much time at the moment trying to track down a specific fix for
this - it would be better to look for a much newer list server program.

Howard, try this: instead of "Forward"ing such a message as an attachment,
"Bounce" it instead. In this way it will appear to the mail system as if it
were the original message, i.e. not as a Sun-flavoured attachment. I think
Sun mailtool supports "bounce"; if not, mutt certainly does.
