that's bizarre... so it inherited the MIME-type of the message i
forwarded?  and was the MIME-type set by MG?  hmmm....

no problem...

and FWIW, my asking why we even allow HTML messages to be
parsed and passed through wasn't questioning your work or ability...

it is, however, still in my mind...  i was more than content knowing

otherwise, there was no moving target to hit when it came to MIME-
types, attachments, etc...
