Most likely since win95 handles memory better than dos. I recall getting
similar mail with a huge cc: list that was tossed to my junk mail folder
due to the names in the recieved: header.
Also look at the filter docs. Your post to the list was directed to my
junk folder since it had more than one ! in the subject line. Being a
slow Sunday I decided to look at it.
