I've heard many times that attachments mess up people's computer systems,
and I'm at a loss to understand how this happens. Could somebody explain
to me, either on the list or privately, how this works? I can see the
problem for people who pay for access by the minute or maybe people with
unusual computer systems, but what does it do to the regular home personal
computer user?

Thanks for any help.
