I think something else is going on, besides just the <LF> only line 
ending.  I'm using two versions of T-Bird, 1.5 and 2.0 something, and 
both display the message concerned the same way, all crammed together on 
a single line.  I think there must be some encoding issue.  It probably 
is some configuration issue with T-Bird, but I've not been able to find it.
