Which I would have to do if you want 76 characters long line. I would  
have to manually wrap them ;)

So you mean we have two clients with opposite behaviours ;)
Interoperability testing and implementation reports?

# Mine
X-Mailer: Apple Mail (2.752.2)
Mime-Version: 1.0 (Apple Message framework v752.2)
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1; delsp=yes; format=flowed

# Yours
X-Mailer: Forte Agent 3.3/32.846
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

Maybe I should modify my script to send a bit more headers to have  
format=flowed.
Will it make it easier for your mailer?
