There is something seriously wrong if your webmail is trying to execute
php code embedded inside an email. Is it a proprietory webmail system
Earthlink is using?

It looks proprietary to me, like some home-grown app that they may have
developed internally.  Maybe I should just make a fix and send it to
their support staff...it's really frustrating.
