YAY Julian! I've got a braindead sysadmin down in Panama who, besides 
enabling every possible way to annoy people (like sending replies to 
address-forging viruses), has *every* user in a 200+ user company set to 
use RTF. Everybody's complained to him (all across the country) that 
they can't get the attachments his users send. This would let my users 
be the *only* ones that can receive them.

I'll definitely put more pressure on my users to go ahead and buy the 
book - and if those that have old copies, to buy them again! ;)
