Just clarify that mail to the list is double virus-checked, nowadays. First
at the ISP, via Brightmail spam and virus checking, and then on the
listserver via NAV2002 with virus defs updated every 4hrs.

This lot interdicts spam and Klez/Bugbear/you name it at a rate of
~150/week. You are very, very unlikely to get any infecton via the list.

However I would still caution that anyone not running AV s/w at their end
is playing Russian roulette. The freeware AVG from www.grisoft.com works
perfectly well, so you have no excuse except laziness. And if you ever have
to clean up the mess one of these things can make, you will regret it.
