Hi Brad

Thank you for this.

The user's messy headings reveal "Content-Type: text/html; 
format=flowed". Is this all I need to know?

I am using Eudora which shows plenty of messy headings. I don't know 
if it is a MUA or not. Please could you explain this term. Also, the 
messy headings don't have any mention of MIME. I'm sorry to say I 
don't even know what this term means. Please could you enlighten me?

In the meantime I have changed my settings to "Should Mailman convert 
text/html parts to plain text? = No". I'll ask the user to post and 
see what happens.

Many thanks for your patience
