CDATA doesn't mean that it shouldn't be displayed, it simply means it 
shouldn't be parsed as HTML/XML, except for looking for the appropriate 
final delimiter.

One tends not to want to display, it because it is generally used where 
there is a foreign machine parseable syntax.

Emails are not formal business letters, whatever businesses may want.
RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
