Dear Cynthia and other Histonetters;

If you try to post a message to the list an get the "SEND NO ENCLOSURES"
message back form the server it means the server has rejected your message
as it contains enclosures or attachments.
"Enclosures" are the same as "attachments" or "attached
files" and there are a number of ways that these might creep into your
First:  Check your email program. Some like Claris Emailer and some Microsoft
programs automatically attach little enclosures to email messages. These
are supposed to authenticate that the message was really sent by who put
their name on it. A security feature, but an unnecessary one. You should be
able to delete this.

Microsoft Explorer is set up to send email as an attachment unless the
defaults are changed. (They are in the preferences, I think.)

Other ideas:

1. You might have put enclosures in your mail by attaching a picture or text
file using a menu choice like "Insert file".
2. There might be graphics in your email template, either in the page
design or signature.
3. If you are sending using a web browser you may well be sending
embedded files without knowing it.
4. If you are sending via a word processor, the output may well be
bundled as a simple (just header and signature) email with the word
processor document file attached to it.

There are good reasons why attached files should not go over the
histonet: they can be very large and word processor files can transmit
macro viruses, to name but two. We've actually blown out sservers all over
by having a large attachment go out over the net!

Good luck fixing your problem!
