Which doesn't really help in helping who sent the message know that
doing it and none of the recent "Worried about GenCon" had any obvious
attachments as such (according to my mail program) the only likely
was a reply with a formatted original message inclusion from Simon
(close date and time to that above) which had the offending message in
header properties but it looked OK in my MIME aware mail program, so I'd
know it was causing a problem.

MIME is a de-facto standard for email communications
so much so that you may not even realise your email program is doing it
which I 
think is probably happening in this case. If you're stuck with an email 
program, through no fault of your own, and it doesn't do MIME then I
think you 
have to live with it under the axiom "good of the many outweigh the good
of the 

This doesn't apply to attachments which we all know are EVIL
