Thanks for the clarification!  I was sleepy when I replied and somehow
missed the important yet subtle detail.  I do know the differences of
Outlook and OE.  I regularly have to read email formatted [or should I
say "unformatted"?] by Outlook 2003 for my $realjob and I've used both
Outlook and OE in the past.

I just felt it was a bit funny to find a message in support of Outlook that
exhibited exactly the sort of malformed output that Outlook is known for.
What I wrote wasn't meant to be an offense to JJB who's one of the regular
posters and *does* contribute a lot to helping others :-)
