At the bottom of your message (on my Netscape mail) is a small icon and
box indicating a text attachment "Part 1.2" followed by the revealing
information as follows:
       Name: vcard.vcf
       Type: text/x-card
   Encoding: 7bit
Description: Card for John H. Ellis

If I were in Eudora, there would be a message that the attachment was
saved as "vcard.vcf". 

In any case, your vcard.vcf becomes a file that occupies space on my
computer, presumably to assure me that your message came from the only
John H. Ellis who anyone would want to converse with. I am sure that
such security would reassure me if you were sending me vital financial
information, proprietary corporate intelligence, or dirty pictures of
geese pooping in the Chattahoochee.

However, as your message is displayed on a listserve with absolutely no
interest for such secrecy and security, the vcard.vcf is at best a
bother to be deleted, or an annoyance to be tolerated. If you don't know
what a vcard.vcf is, why do you send it to everyone on this listserve?

Go figure.
