    Hi Scott,

    Thanks for your explanation of how =20's are made.   Which choice should an 
email list use when we send and receive messages.   For example, when we go 
tools, options, send, HTML Settings, we will see the window :
    MINE message format, Encode Text using: 
    and our choices are: None, Quoted Printable, Base 64.
    Which one do we use?    What does Base 64 do?

      Quoted-Printable has generally been replaced by MIME-Coded.  Some
      systems have trouble handling Quoted-Printable properly.  If it gets
      mangled, as in Sandi's case (those three lines at the top of her
      messages SHOULD have been in the header -- apparently a blank line was
      inserted before those three lines), then the receiving end will
      not be able to re-create the message correctly.

      Quoted-Printable not only breaks long lines by putting an equal sign
      at the end, it also converts certain characters that may not make it
      through the system properly.  As you've seen, sometime it'll convert a
      space to "=20".  The 20 is hexadecimal; in decimal it is 32, which is
      the ASCII value for a space.  The "=3D" is decimal 61, which is the
      ASCII value for an equal sign.  Since Printed-Quotable uses equal
      signs, then any equal signs in the message MUST be quoted in order to
      prevent problems on the receiving end.
