Wow, that's unbelievable. ;-)
Pine seems to handle it ok from what I've seen. Mutt refuses to, as that's
not its job, but the standard practice is to autoview it to lynx. I don't mind
that much receiving it as long as the sender isn't relying on me to see it the
way they do. I've had people tell me, "my responses are in blue below." I have
to respond to them, stating "no, they're not." Meanwhile I can't tell where
their responses are because their mailer didn't even put > characters in.
Sorry, but it's damn annoying, whatever you may believe.
