Just a random thought: RFC822 does not require a space to follow the
delimiting colon of a field name.  So, does this mean that your example
merely describes a Subject field without a leading space?  Or does it
mean that the mailserver URL should always cause a space to be added
in the final message?

Not that this is likely to cause much problems, it's just that the
formulation is not quite clear on this point.

Sincerely,                                  berg@pool.informatik.rwth-aachen.de

Up your accumulator.
