True. There's absolutely no indication in the text version that it's a 
quote, and of course it's not exactly readable with half an acre of 
"mso-style-type:personal-compose", "<p class="MsoNormal"><font 
face="Arial" size="2"><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: 
Arial;">" and the like strewn through it. Sorry about that.

Also, because Minnie's message was correctly MIMEd (nice change for 
MS-Exchange), KMail actually displayed the text version without 
complaint. It wasn't even obvious that there *was* an HTML version.

Minnie, you need to put a flea in your postmaster's ear. Your mail 
sender identifies itself as aesdb.austexhibit.com.au, but there is no 
such host defined in the DNS for austexhibit.com.au; (s)he needs to add 
an A-record for aesdb pointing to in order to avoid 
some mail servers rejecting mail from his/her host -- but at least 
(s)he didn't use an MS-Windows domain name in the HELO, which many 
MS-Exchange admins do, along with happily sending bounces from 
"postmaster@" but not accepting mail for that address.

Cheers; Leon
