        Sorry I hadn't gotten back to you earlier than this. Work
calls, and
        I've been trying to replicate your problem, without any luck.
        system is very similar to yours.

        That's alright mate!

        One question: Do you do all of your mail-handling within Linux?
I used
        to do some e-mail work from Windows, and then transferred
attachments to
        my Linux box, and some text files (like Perl scripts) would turn
        without the proper conversions. Is this a possible source of
your problem?

        No. Mail handling is done by a MS Exchange Server which forwards
all SMTP mail to our ISP via the Linux box. but not via smail or
sendmail etc.

        Smail or Sendmail etc. hasn't been set-up, it's just purely
doing squid and DNS (plus I suppose firewalling).

        I think what your suggesting is possible. M$ do have some funny
ideas when it comes to implementing protocols and network applications
such as TCP/IP and SMTP (and, of course theirs that other small one
regarding taking over the world).

        What I think I'll try is downloading say, calamaris from an FTP
site directly to the Linux box and running it again. What do you think?
Do you have a URL of such an FTP site?
