Are you saying that 27 bytes of text/mail is such a great deal of space,
that your internet connection wouldn't survive that?

If that's the issue, why do we have those silly messages at the end of
each e-mail at all? 
"sounder mailing list" - of course it is, I can see where the mail is
addressed to! 
"sounder at" - just press ctrl+l, and you don't even have
to know what address it is. Also, it's still in the headers.
"" well, duh, the
readers who wants to visit that URL are too stupid to click on that link
anyway, wich makes it silly to have there.

We already have 99 bytes in the footer. Are you saying that those extra
27 bytes is the end of the world?
