   Has anyone looked at mail sent by the IncrediMail client? I had a guy send
a 17-word post to a previous message, quoting _nothing,_ and his message was
10k in size because of the overhead from this client. Another different user
used it to s*bscribe, and this time the message was 12k, and this included NO
BODY TEXT WHATSOEVER, just "s*bscribe" in the subject field.

   With the sender's permission (and with email addresses munged), I've
posted the thing at for
your edification and amusement.

   Suddenly Outlook Express doesn't seem to be so bandwidth-wasteful after
