I've read the bounce messages but my work email setup is totally braindead.
I have outlook configured to send plain text (the only sane option imnsho).
This would be ok except that exchange is configured not only to add an
obnoxious disclaimer but also to send the modified mail as html. I've
tried to get this changed but no one seems to understand why anyone
would want to use plain text. :-(
Of course anyone who runs a list makes the rules and I have no problem
with that - so if I want to send to the list from work I use Gmane.

Talk about brain dead policies - this one never had a live brain to die.
