Hi, I have further investigated this (BTW how to search for =20 with Google?). I have found this: --> SNIP START A third thing that can cause "messy" email is the fact that some older mail programs do not gracefully handle the advanced character sets that let us use "special characters" such as bullet marks, foreign letters, and other non-standard characters. Eudora and many other email programs use something called "quoted-printable" encoding to send these special characters, which requires that the receiving email program support an email standard called MIME. If the email program of your recipient is not MIME-compliant, then they might see text that looks like this:
> See Dick=20 >See Dick run. Run, Dick, run.
See Jane dance.=20 >Dance,.=20 Jane, dance. The solution is to turn off "quoted-printable" encoding for messages that are going to people with older mail programs. <-- SNIP END However I configure Opera in this way... -- Robert M. M=FCnch Mobile: +49 (177) 245 2802
