Hi Don, Thursday (17 September 1998)

EVERY message arriving via the PWG reflector has the following errors in
the SMTP headers. The '@' has been DOUBLED before 'pwg.org' in both the
'To:' and the 'Sender:' SMTP header elements. The excerpt below came
from command line mail on a SunOS workstation, so I'm pretty confident
that the damage is actually in all of the incoming mail from the PWG.

Cheers,
- Ira McDonald (High North)

PS - I see this kind of breakage in mail that originated from IBM,
Dataproducts, Sun, and Xerox people so it is NOT a problem with the
originators.
