If the file sizes were large (like around 150-200K) it may have been that
nasty and extremely annoying worm that starts with a "kl" and ends with a
"z" that's been making its rounds.

Just extremely annoying.
I suppose the recent lull in traffic on this list over the past week (for
whatever odd reason) has kept discussion of the "smiley face" mail bomb guy

deadly as snail mail anthrax spores and pipe bombs.
