You're right. Somehow the update failed. Now I have all updated. The =0A
ist gone now, and there are CRLF line breaks where they should be. But
I cannot see the "=20" which other mail programs use in addition to the
CRLF. I cannot test with different mil programs at the moment, so this
could be correct or not.

I checked rfc 2045 sec 6.5 and 6.7 and I think these line breaks without
"=20" should be correct. I cannot find the "=20" in rfc 2045, so I
don't exactly know why the other clients are using them...

Do you have in deep knowledge of this subject?
