Hi Gary. I've just upgraded /Core to the latest from the experimentals page and tested your code. My mail program (Pegasus) correctly displayed the source page both in it's internal viewer, and by handing the page off to my web browser (Netscape 4.61) In reviewing the headers, I see the following, in order: Date: Tue, 24 Oct 2000 9:30:08 -0700 Subject: Test Message X-REBOL: http://WWW.REBOL.COM Content-Type: text/html What you're seeing is the X-header (extended information which may or may not be present in a message, and may or may not contain information of interest to the client). What's almost certainly happening is you've got an extra ^/ (end-of- line) at the end of your Subject: which is causing a blank line to appear after the Subject: line and before the X-REBOL: header. A blank line signifies the end of headers and your mail client is reading the rest as a plain text message, because it never gets the Content-Type: header. By adding the extra ^/ to the end of my Subject: header in my test, I was able to cause the same results you described. If you fix your Subject: line to remove the extra ^/, things will work correctly.
