No, Mr. McKenna is using eudora:
"X-Mailer: QUALCOMM Windows Eudora Pro Version 3.0.5 (32)"
The attachment is named "attachment.bin" and does not
necessarily contain a virus, although all warning lights
should flash red when recieving such things.
If my memory isn't failing, I think those oooold Eudoras had
some funny sending formats, one could choose some Apple
specific ones, uuencode, base64 and BinHex wich may be the
problem here.

Maybe it's time to upgrade the client, latest versions are
at least in the 7.xx range.
