I just looked at this from home on my apple mac and instead of  
attaching the attachments as attachments it appeared to have put them  
in the mail as text. I am not sure if this was the doing of Apple  
Mail (what I use at home) or Thunderbird (what I use at work). Would  
someone be so kind as to tell me if these attachments worked ok?
