         In the e-mail I got from him:
         Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii

         Also, the thing in brackets is actually mine, not his. I send all
of my mail as multipart/alternative, since almost every mail client in
existence now handles it properly, and thelist is nice enough to pick it
apart for me.

         I couldn't figure out anything else that might be "suspicious"
about his normal headers.


         P.S. Here are the rest of his headers, from a direct email:
