I still resent this.  It hasn't been shown that this is actually
necessary.  So far there have been only vague references to unnamed
mailers that might get it wrong.

The elm 2.4 PL22 I'm running on this machine doesn't have the bug you
say your's has.  I suspect your version is either misconfigured or
a bug was introduced in a later version.  I guess, you'll need to
investigate locally.
