The list strips the high bit from non-ASCII octets in email; I've been
annoyed by this occasionally myself (for example, as I send it, this is
a degree sign: 0 - but I expect it to get turned into a 0 by the list).
The ISO 8859-1 centred-dot character, 0xb7, thus gets transformed into
0x37, ASCII digit 7.  So, that 777 probably was three centred-dot
characters in the original mail as ama@ wrote it (which, as you say,
indicates twisted-pair Ethernet).
