Thank you , Kamil.

It's only the ....fail one that is interesting to us (the other two are part of the R sources!).

However, for attachments to make it through the anti-virus anti-spam filters, you need to give them MIME-type 'text/*' typically 'text/plain'
whereas many e-mail programs nowadays just blindly put 'application/octet-stream' ... the same format that viruses are often using as well.

One way to help your e-mail software to use the proper mime type, may be to rename the file to something like

   d-p-q-r-tests_Rout_fail.txt
