Re: eudora headers

Unfortunately, yes, iff you forward a message to someone else instead of 
hitting the reply button (control-r) to respond to the original sender, the 
header information is transfered from the original message to your own 
message, along with a copy of the message you want to forward. At that 
point, the only way to counteract it is to go through and manually delete 
the header information from the message. Though I should point out that if 
s/he's concerned with regards header information in general, that can't be 
avoided. Only if s/he wants to manually remove all of the header lines... a 
rather lengthy process depending on the number of headers involved. the 
listserver, for instance, adds a few more headers than normal before it 
relays messages sent to it, though those headers have more to do with virus 
scanning info and the fact that yes, the message was scanned before it was 
distributed. I have taken steps to minimise how many of these headers are 
displayed, but I can't get rid of all of them unfortunately.
