Some Microsoft c**p - it calls itself "Internet Mail", but I'm not sure
if that's what it is marketted as :-/ There are some good features about
it, but... there are many deficiencies as well. This is one of them :-(

Please don't suggest that I download another mail handler unless there's
one which is less than about 100KB to download. That's the biggest file
size I can be reasonably certain of downloading in less than 10
without my ISP breaking the connection *every* time :-(

Tried this; it works. I have now cut the GZG filtering down to 4 cases:

"To" includes "GZG-L@"
"To" includes "gzg-l@"
"Copy" includes "GZG-L@"
"Copy" includes "gzg-l@"

I also re-tried not using the lower-case variants; sure enough, I got
gzg-l posts (but not the GZG-L ones) in my inbox instead. Bad place for
them to be, they sort of disappear among the SDS mail :-/
