Heck, why would they see the instructions not to send attachments any
more than they see the instructions about how to unsubscribe?

Forgive me if I seem cranky, but for me that mail, whatever it was,
cost a lot more than 5 minutes download time. After 45-50 minutes
waiting for the message to download, I finally bailed out of the mail
and went to my ISP's website, where I was able to delete the offending
message out of the queue so I could download the remaining mail. By then
I had spent a very frustrating hour trying to get my mail. I would have
left it to deal with later except I especially wanted a mail from a
chemist that I needed to see before taking the next step in the project
I'm working on. So now I'm ready to start my work for the day, but in a
very bad mood. Don't do that no more, okay?
