The sender of the message certainly was Eudora Windows 5.1   However, when
reading the message using Netscape 7 on a mac, if I copy the message to a
local folder, it appears fine.  If I copy it to an IMAP folder on a VMS system
running Multinet (usually guaranteed to break everything), it still appears
fine.  If I then copy it back to Cyrus, it still appears empty.  And, as I
said, it looks fine using Squirrelmail.  So perhaps you can see why I'm just a
little skeptical that it's a Eudora problem, unless you can explain why all
these other methods work ok, while Cyrus doesn't. :)
