Hi Simon,

Thanks for the notice. I hadn't seen that one yet. I just added it to my 
poisoned list - .cpl are control panel files, so no-one should have a 
legitimate reason for emailing those around anyway. If they do, they can 
zip them first :)

It is rather amusing :)

On a side note, is it ok to put comments in the poisoned file?

I have specific filenames (eg readme.eml or story.doc) which are in there 
because of virii but I can't remember which ones.. so if I can put a 
comment in there (url at least) that would solve my problem.
