I'm getting them right now, in fact -- both your messages and Guy's have a =
at the end of every line. I've seen this in MR/2 (which I'm using now),
PMMail, and previously in email and USENET groups imported to our BBS, using
a variety of offline readers and through the BBS message viewer itself...
In short, no matter what mail-reader system I'm using, I can always tell
when someone's using MS Exchange, because the messages have the = at the end
of each line and the odd other = with another character scattered throughout
the file (like, there's an '=20' where you cut off Guy's original message to
add your reply).
