Due to the fact that I's been a while I had a stable enough system to
entrust configuring any mail crap (including clients, IMAP or not) on
(except for a file server), I'm currectly using SquirrelMail as provided
for by my ISP. I'll ask them (XS4ALL happens to be a /very/ friendly ISP)
to fix it; in the mean time, there's not much I can do (I'm /not/ going to
meddle around with broken xterms, twm, and Lunix on my -server-
-workstation- -desktop- -gaming machine- gaming machine producing
rendering artifacts to use mail(1) on a FreeBSD shell server; it's just
asking for trouble).

Don't misunderstand me: I'll be glad to use a proper client and send
proper headers. However, it just isn't possible /right now/.

From the fool file:
I don't see why the way people have historically partitioned disks should
dictate which kernels we build and distribute by default in the future.
