Some surely don't - apologies for my tone to those people. Some are aware - I know, because I've told them off-list that
their mail was unreadable. Also, when other people respond theirs gets messed up as well. I use Netscape, so part of the
problem may be attributable to my own configuration - if so, I'll graciously accept any due flaming.
