Use Mozilla Mail.  It allows one to view the message source. This is 
something that, to my knowledge, cannot be done in Outlook or OE.

You'll need to pay attention to all of the details.  For instance, I 
found one mail app that didn't display anything if the trailing dashes 
from the last seperator were missing.  Most others displayed the 
malformed messages fine.  Another one that's gotten me is failing to 
specify "Content-Transfer-Encoding" for base64 files, or "name" or 
"filename" subfields where necessary.

The code looked OK to me, but again, I don't know the "email" package at
