No one was ever do that? That is up there on the possible scale with a
encrypted zip file that is mailed to a user and asked them to input the
word, open the zip and run the file. That would never happen....wait..

yet, if I read this properly it wasnpt simply and open e-mail attachment
issue was it, it was open attachment then make suggested changes to the
system issue wasn't it?  If I understood the problem, then it really
requres more then a simple luser, it requires the most stupid of lusers
for it to take.  and in that case, we're perhaps better off with them
DOS'ed? <smile>
