<x-flowed>Members of our Czernowitz-List will welcome the message below that Bruce and
I received from the Cornell E Mail List Admin Team. We thought everyone would
want to be aware of this upgrade.

>Dear E-mail-list owners
>On Mon Aug 04 2003 from 0600-0630 (am) the Cornell e-mail-list service
>will be upgraded so that it will scan for and block viri posted to
>e-mail-lists. We will use the same Pure Message system being used
>on the new postoffices. There will be a brief delay in the processing
>of e-mail-list messages during this upgrade.
>This new service should (nearly) eliminate redistribution of viri
>by e-mail-lists (which is a good thing!).
>With this new service, anything posted to an e-mail-list that is
>identified as a virus will be quarantined, and the quarantine
>notification will be sent to the owners of the list. If the owner
>suspects that the original message was incorrectly identified
>as a virus, they should contact the original sender of the message
>to explore the issue. If it is discovered that the original message
>was *not* a virus, then please contact listmgr_at_cornell.edu with the
>details so we can work together to reduce such false identifications.
>Note that this upgrade will only provide anti-virus services.
>It will *not* provide anti-spam services. (Anti-spam services for
>e-mail-lists is a much trickier problem and is still under investigation)
>If you have any questions or comments, please contact us at
> listmgr_at_cornell.edu
