>I thought I covered that with "RFC822 seems to say it's not, but agents seem
to consistently use From, To, etc, with the first letter in uppercase and
subsequent letter lowercase." Also, I was assuming that there was a
possibility that RFC822 was superceded by a newer standard in-line with that
consistency. I was just checking - there's no need to jump down my throat

>Yes, I realise the importance of them, and that's why I keep copies of them
and *do* actually read them. And if there are more that I should be aware of
I'd appreciate it if you let me know about them (I only came across the few
I have on the Sendmail site). They're heavy going usually though, and the
language in them - although completely correct obviously - sometimes just
serves to confuse rather than clarify. That's why I was hoping someone could
point out some plain-English resources on the subject.
Thanks for taking the time to reply Lars, and sorry for getting defensive,
but if there's one comment that *really* bugs the shit out of me, it's
"which part of this do you not understand?". I guess all the ILUG members
are making a note of that now. :)
