      Well, I got one with no subject line and the headers rather badly
      mangled. It also didn't have the [XP] prefixed to the subject line
      that indicates it came from Yahoo Groups. I suspect someone is
      playing with one (or more) of your e-mails while working on their
      own mail client.
