    *boggle*  Do people (real ones, mind you, those that are supposed
to have some semblence of clue) really do this?  Do they understand
the ramifications of it (untraceable forgery, for one)?  Or is this,
perhaps, a (mis)feature of G-mail?  (Given my druthers, I try like
mad to *not* transmit to G-mail.  The G-men may be reading ;-) )
