Re: All Files and Directories on a Windows Fileserver Share Act Like Character Special Device

FYI it's also good practice to remove signatures when you reply; it
confuses "good" mailers if you don't: your reply becomes a very LONG
signature (which may be a different, possibly less legible color), and
mailers that snip signatures will also snip your reply, rather than
correctly quoting it.
And since you mentioned evil Outlook, two suggestions:
1. Get Thunderbird. Even if you (like me! ;-)) can't use this for
regular e-mail, you can still use news.gmane.org and use it for nothing
but this list (or other NNTP groups, of course).
2. Investigate "oe-quotefix". Googling that, or 'outlook PCYMTNQREAIYR'
should find it.
Will your shell have salvation? Only if it's Bourne Again.
