***** observed with a branch 2000-10-25 build ****
I noticed this problem with the message body when you have a long cycle of
replies going on. At the line break of the original message the exclamation sign
will be inserted (!) and the deeper to the buttom the more !!!! you'll see. Same
is happening to the Subject field inside the message body.
Do you still see this problem?

reproducible in current builds. Peter, could you check? Thanks.

Initial impression...
Using today win32 commercial build 2000-011008-mtrunk build, I was not able to 
reproduce this issue.  The 6.0 feature "Content-Type: ... format=flowed" appears 
to working as designed within 6.0.  This plain text wrapping feature start to 
fail (wrapping incorrectly) when you start to mix 6.0 email and 4.7x plain 
messages which I believe goes beyond the capability of format=flow.  

I have not tested wrapping with 3rd party mail message yet.  Before I mark this 
bug as worksforme, I like to test further.

have you been able to reproduce it?  What types of messages cause this problem
and how many replies does it take to make it happen?

It look like the the program outlook & exchange is removing the carriage 
returns.  I don't have testcase yet.

The message indicated that it was sent from 
X-Mailer: Internet Mail Service (5.5.2650.21)

Peter, can you tell if this is easily reproduced using Exchange and Outlook?  If
not then this is probably going to get an nsbeta1-.
