Yes, so it starts with the = sign and as it is translated the = sign becomes
visible, maybe with the 20 too.

Because we do so many replies in the group, the original email gets
translated many times, back and forth, adding things, until it is a mess.

If you note that all the messed up messages have a printed quotable in it's
headed, wherever it comes from, who knows. :O)

And if you noted that Sandi's messed up emails this morning also had the
words printed quotable at the top of the message.

  Note: Nothing is said about a "20"
  A carriage return of end of line is not a 20...its a 13 or ctrl "m".

  I don't know what is causing it,only what isn't...:-)

  OLEXP: No Quote Characters When Using Quoted Printable Format
  The information in this article applies to:
    a.. Microsoft Outlook Express 4.0 for Windows NT 4.0
    b.. Microsoft Outlook Express 4.0 for Windows 95
  This article was previously published under Q168779
  SYMPTOMS
  When you reply to or forward a message that was composed using "Plain
Text, Quoted Printable" format in Outlook Express, there is not a quote
character at the beginning of each line of text that is included from the
message you received.
  CAUSE
  This is a side effect of the "Plain Text, Quoted Printable" format in the
message you received.
  MORE INFORMATION
  Generally, you see a quote character (such as ">") on each line of the
message you are quoting. For this to work, there must be a <CR><LF> pair
(\r\n) at the end of each line.

  When a message is sent using "Plain Text, Quoted Printable" format, an
equal sign is added to the end of the line to let the browser know that the
line continues. Therefore, there is only one quote character at the
beginning of each paragraph quoted.

  The main purpose of "Plain Text, Quoted Printable" format is to allow for
line wrapping. When you send mail on the Internet, you can send only 80
characters on a line of text. To provide word-wrap capability, the lines are
packaged in "Plain Text, Quoted Printable" format. This ends each line with
an equal sign to indicate that it continues to the next line.
