It is true that this is not just the AOLers doing it. But in my case
99% of the time, it is from someone using aol. And I have tried to
find out why they do this and from their response I know that it is
the aol mailer that give them a short From: and Subject: and I guess
the UI automatically responds to the From: as interpreted by AOL.

AOL appends the complete header at the end of the email text, but no
one ever bothers even to look at them I think. Since I have a large
number of aol subscribers, I see it very often.
