Wow! I haven't see one of those for *years* -- I haven't noticed one for 
about 15 years, and I thought it was an obsolete format that even 
Windows email stopped using.

I think the presence of that is somewhat ironic on a thread arguing that 
we ought to remove working modules for obsolete formats.
