I didn't anticipate that Outlook would alter the format of the
encapsulated message when it forwarded it as an attachment. That may be
standard procedure, but it throws a wrinkle into the works. For
example, a signature delimiter "-- " is depicted as "--=20" in the
forwarded message. Who knows what else is done.
So if I want to strip out the original message, I will have to deal with
unmangling the body of the message as well.
Sigh. Maybe I'm better off leaving things as is for now.
