	The problem with telling people to copy something exactly is when 
the message is processed by a downstream mail server that modifies 
what you've typed, so that other software doesn't get confused as to 
what constitutes an entire message in the mailbox.

	In particular, the conversion of "^From_" (where "^" represents 
the beginning of the line, and "_" represents a hard space character) 
to "^>From_".
