  If you know that HTML mail is discuraged then you should also know
  that you should not have included in your reply to him.

  You should also know that "triming" is very much encouraged but I
  see you don't do that very much.

  There are many of us on slow dialup.  Including the last 3-4 replies
  with your answer is not nesessary, or welcomed.  Most mutt users
  have all of the thread available already.  The thread with your
  fetchmail question comes to mind as a case in point.

Have a nice day.  :-)


All you need to know is the user interface.
