Subject: Re: P.S. re the Long Message

"The first screen" just means the amount of the message that fits on one

computer screen (which depends on what computer and mail program you're

using), and is what you see first when you read an email message.

Downloading binary files that came from people you don't know is risky

because a binary file could be a virus. It probably isn't, but it could

be. (It's probably something merely useless, like a bitmapped picture

of a fir tree.)
