No :-(

Headers include the dread "quoted printable" - see excerpt at end .

This exercise has told me one thing. I wondered why with SOME messages I did
not get the senders text marked with my chosen ">" character. Someone
pointed out that this is a result of the message being in "quoted printable"

In Outlook Express 6 you would do the following to get rid of "quoted
If you are using another version of OE then the method may vary somewhat
from this.

In Outlook Express
Tools (menu)
   Options (menu item)
       Send Tab
           Set mail sending format to "plain text" (radio button)
           Click "Plain text settings" button
               Set message format to "Mime" using radio button **
               Set "Encode text using" box to "none" *

           * This is where the "quoted printable" gets set.
           ** You could click UUENCODE here but Mime is OK (I believe) in
this context.

           You can also set the line break length here (set to somewhat
less than 80)
           & the delimiter used to mark sender's text.
