Here is the problem:

 X-Mailer: Microsoft Office Outlook, Build 11.0.6353

Outlook is not a real MUA.  It lacks so many features that any decent
MUA has it is quite astounding it has persisted as long as it has.

Some folks around here consider myself, Ron, Paul, Andrew and some of
the others to be experts.  I don't think any of us is in any danger of
quitting the list.

Well, I am here to talk about whatever is being discussed on the list.
While you are at it, why not criticize the people who post Ubuntu or
Knoppix questions?  How about those people who post programming
questions?  Or what about questions about how to use the powerful
features of mutt?

By your definition, the *majority* of the traffic on this list is OT.
