Empty "plain text" messages

I suspect that these blank messages are NOT being sent as plain text. The 
mailing list software is probably configured to delete HTML and attachments, 
and the sender is unwittingly sending html-ized text with no corresponding 
plain text version.

Either that, or the email client being used to send these empty messages is 
buggy. The latter is quite possible as it looks like she's using something 
called "Javamail".

The sender should take the time to investigate the settings in her email 
client. She can test them by sending herself a message, btw.

If all else fails, install and use a reliable email program like Pegasus 
(sadly, Windows only).
