Chris Wendt already explained the high degree of control one gets in OE,
so MS Outlook 2000 must be another software. ( Thanks Chris! )

Marco, I had already gone through several mailboxes with hundreds of
UML postings searching for such a message from you, but could not find
a single one. I'm sure your UTF-8 posts ended up among the most interesting
ones, concatenated and saved as WP files. As soon as your Outlook 2000 sees
fit to deliver another such message I will send you the particulars.
Don't worry.
