By the way,  my apologies for using  your domain as an  example. I could
have just as easily  setup a separate subdomain for this  test. I was so
surprised to  actually find a domain  that used -all that  I immediately
put on my ``for science'' hat and proceeded to test.

Yes,  Hotmail accepted  the message  over  SMTP from  a non-approved  IP
address and delivered it the Spam folder.

I'll conduct a  better experiment later to see if  there is a difference
in spam judgement.

Interesting observation.  I've always  found it to  be the  opposite and
you're actually the first to have mentioned  it. At least for me, I find
that  having  the  text  wrapped  at  odd  places,  or  not  wrapped  at
all  depending on  the  terminal/software displaying  it,  is much  more
