The reason is your institution's `high-quality' ;-) virus-scanner:
Most of R-help digests sent to you are bounced as containing a
virus  though it's very clear they do not, e.g.,

indeed!  though I regularly receive ``virtual flowers'' (e-"thank you"s).

Please do not bother  R-help  with these problems in general.
(this is CC'ed to R-help to *close* the thread!)
