Dear RadSafers,

Yesterday (November 30) you have received about 10 or so messages from 
RadSafe that seemed to come / originate from Rainer. They contained two 
attachments and all had a timestamp (at least on my system) of 20:23 h. 
This was obviously not a normal situation. Up to now I'm not sure yet 
what caused this situation but I've managed to restore the situation to 
normal and the server is not sending out these messages again.

As far as I could determine the messages came from the listsoftware on 
the server and I don't think it was caused by something on 
Rainers side (so do not blame him please!). The attachments only contain 
the textbody of the messages that Rainer originally send at an earlier 
stage to RadSafe. Although the attachments only contain harmless text I 
advise you to delete these messages and not open the attachments (at 
least not on Windows systems). Messages coming from RadSafe should 
normally have no attachments, since they are not allowed, except for 

I'm sorry for any inconvenience caused by this.

With kind regards,
