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 http://www.lofcom.com/news/messages/msg0062.phtml for
your edification and amusement.
