Russell, your body got through.
I think your e-mails arrived blank because you did not write into it.
True: some spam-hunter softwares may consider the lengthy rapsheet of all
your titles and addresses (+numbers) as sort of a spam, but most such
softwares give a warning, or delete the entire mail altogether. To "get" the
blanked off  e-mail and the attachments may be funny. (It seems I hit
several nerves with my virus-paranoia).
