Note that what's missing are = signs and the characters following. On the 
other hand, _I_ get _extra_ characters at the beginning and end of each 
line of some of Greg's posts, a "square unprintable" at the beginning, 
and a "=20" at the end. Quotes, etc. are turned into equal-some-hex# in 
the middle. I don't see the mime errors or the missing equals.... and 
some posts come through perfect, like his response quoted above! I also 
see this on other's postings, although far less often than on Greg's. 
(Which may just mean he's a prolific poster!)

I'm using Claris Em@iler through AOL though, so there's no telling, and 
it's pretty easy to get used to. No dialog boxes or duplicates here!
