Sorry for this digression. We have worked out that our virus checker is 
sending what look like attachments to people who are reading (I think) 
their mail on text readers. We don't control the format of this, and 
obviously it looks different to different people, depending on your mail 
program. If people find it annoying, we can turn the virus thingy off, but 
the point is to try to ensure we aren't passing on viruses.
Except that isn't the part that looks weird on my reader. What I mind (not 
terribly much given that it isn't *hugely* long and isn't scrambling 
everything that comes after it) is the bit that goes:

Content-type: text/plain; x-avg-checked=avg-ok-7EBA3BEC; charset=us-ascii;
Content-transfer-encoding: 7BIT

Does that look like anything? On my end it looks like Boundary 
blah-blah-blah, Content-type blah-blah-blah, Content-transfer-encoding
