Congratulations you can use an editor

So don't. knoppix is reasonably up to date out of the box..
if you want a secure supported OS install DEBIAN stable. ( that means 
kde 2.2 and xfree 4.2 and yes that's old) you can either have the new
shiny stuff or a secure machine not both.

All the above relate to java. if you don't want to use them put a # at
the start of the line in question.

On the note of email formating. Internet best practice is to wrap at 72 
columns which allows for a few levels of reply before causeing ugly
wrapping.  now as most clients can wrap messages properly this isn't
such a big issue.. but it's still nice.

Also kylie your email client is broken. and does not include a 
In-Reply-To header. Change to something that works.
