Maybe it's your e-mail address or something in your .sig. :P Are you
telling your mailer to use a specific header, or possibly a MIME
content-type that is unsual?

My argument for it being on your end is that it doesn't happen with
anyone else's mails. However, I'm much more inclined to believe OE is
messed up than KMail. [I don't know about Pegasus -- It's mature and
all but wasn't it originally for something other than POP3?]

These messages were posted a long time ago on a mailing list far, far away. The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
