Thanks for pointing out. I am not sure though what's being detected as
fancy. I checked that my emails are received as plaintext on
majordomo. They are also displayed fine on LKML.

In this email, I have tried to keep the format of to: and cc: same as
first email in the thread. Not sure if this fixes the problem.

Again.. sorry for spamming.
