Greetings Jean,

The mail reader a person is using is only half the equation. The mail server
port or gateway has the option of changing the format, font, and signature

For example, I use Microsoft Outlook. My "real address" for Outlook is
barry -dot- kieffer -at- exgate -dot- tek -dot- com -dot- When you post a message and the TECHWR-L
server sends it to me, the mail is sent to the address:
barry -dot- kieffer -at- tek -dot- com -dot-

At the "exgate" address I can see your signature info, but that is lost when
the message passes through the "tek" server.

It is WAY more complicated than that, but in a nutshell, that is what you
will run into. It is not the mail reader, but all of the mail servers,
converters, and what-not out there in cyberspace.


And you probably cannot see my fancy signature either...
