academie: attachments?

I guess some clarification is in order.  I'm not getting any spam through the list, per se.  What had been getting was unwanted attachments on legitimate academie e-mails.  Small attachments with titles like untitled-4b.  I notice that I haven't seen any attachments on the last few e-mails that came through (Cosntanza's and Greg's) but for several days everything up to and including Bryan's last e-mail had the strange little attachments.  Did anyone else notice this, or was it just me?

The problem appears to be solved now, although I don't know whether that has anything to do with the computer I'm using to check e-mail (all problem e-mails were noticed when I opened my webmail via my pc at work, the non-problem e-mails have been opened on my mac at home, although I don't really see why that would fix the problem so hopefully it's really resolved itself).  I will let someone know if the problem starts back up again and I can provide more specifics.
