Alternate Option
Thoughts from me.

Format=flowed
Today I received an email, and to my surprise it supported format=flowed. I thought only Apple Mail.app and Eudora supported f=f, and I was quite sure this dude who sent me this email was using neither.

The heading was:

Date: Fri, 8 Apr 2005 14:23:15 +1000
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain;
format=flowed;
reply-type=response
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit
X-Priority: 3
X-MSMail-Priority: Normal
X-Mailer: Microsoft Outlook Express 6.00.2900.2180

So I suppose Outlook Express 6 for Windows supports it as well then. Surprising.

Disappointingly, most people are unaware of the significance of f=f. Considering the massive amount of email circling the globe, it's such a waste to have a perfectly good idea being unused. Unfortunately there isn’t a body or company that specifically promotes it, and it’s all really sad.
