If you are modifying only the subject line, why not just parse just the
header with Indy and leave the body unchanged?

This was fixed in the dev snapshot.

Thats because it reencodes it - its like taking a CD, recording it to tape
(analog) and then resampling to digital. Now compare the digital versions and
nthey will of course be different.

A) You'll have to be specific. Users are quick to complain, but rarely bother
to give us reproducible cases.

B) Dont expect any major changes in 9 - 9 works for 99% of the cases and 10
is our current focus. So Id suggest you check against 10 and then if it fails
make a bubble for us to test against.

Again - specifics.
