Paul, I have a question that perhaps you can answer. I have been posting
on a Microsoft Outlook forum regarding the problem I was having. I gave
them your reply regarding "\r\n" vs. "\n". They claim that there is no
requirement for that.

Are you aware of any RFC that specifies the expected behavior?

Thanks :)
