OK I double checked in DOS ( type . emacs) It is on a single line
there.  This mailer word-wrapped the line.

Emacs word-wrapped the address line below and it was saved that way.
I just did put it all on one line and restarted emacs.  no joy.

So,  I guess we're back to square one.   What the heck does the error
message mean?

I would like to solve the  puzzle, and I appreciate your idea.  If
nothing else pops up, I'll copy the working version from the laptop
back to the desktop.  But that's like saying uncle.
