    I have OE 6/xp all up to date.

    In some mail received there is the following..

    =EF=BB=BF<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">

    In others from same person the EF BB Bf is not there.

    What is the EF BB BF for? Would it denote something about multi recipients receiving same mail? Maybe in different countrys?

    I know it has to do with UTF and bom but what is it for? what does it do?

    thanks much,

    :confused:
