I'm not sure what that means (there being no "Apple" key on my  
Apple(tm) keyboard),  but what ever it was, there is nothing attached.  
Pdf files are generally accepted, and I have noticed that some mailers  
are able to attach .png files which do not get scrubbed by the mail  
server, but the default format for the Grab.app program is tiff and I  
don't think that format gets passed through. A tiff screenshot may be  
a megabyte in size which is larger than the mailing list likes to  
Archive. Maybe you should select the text and copy into the body of  
your message?

Furthermore there does not appear to be a good connection between the  
subject line and the rest of this message. One wonders whether you  
have read the "Clipboard" section that you get with ?clipboard?
