Of course - right, the text->ps is formatted internally, as part of the
e-mail. That behaviour could easily be changed.
Do you still want the email headers formatted, or are you using the -N
What we really want is a "flexible" way to allow user/admin to specify
exactly which parts of a message (headers, mime parts, certain
attachements). Do you have any ideas on the best way to do that? I'm
certainly willing to work an a patch that can implement this type of
stuff - I just haven't figured out how it should look to users.
