          I think the point is being missed here with regard to tab
stops. If everyone on the network interpreted tabs the same way, this
transaction would never have been started. Since there is variation on
tab interpretation, it would seem that if the SMTP mailers expanded the
tabs to the appropiate number of spaces, then compatability would be
assured. The only negative effect of this might be to people who FTP
files via mail, and who might not get exactly the same file on the other
side. However, they might wish to to use FTP instead...
