Got the latest snapshot (7/12/2005 11AM) and it still does the same thing...
on the ftp server for Delphi 6 INDY 10.52.

Here is the problem.

The HTML body has
=====================
<p>* From 01 July 2005, Qantas Airways domestic ticketing through the FTU
will not attract any commission at source, however there will
<b><u>not</u></b> be any service fee. Members will be able to earn up to
3.5% in incentive commissions on Group sales target achievement. Members
self-ticketing will be able to earn up to 4.0%. This commission will be paid
quarterly. </p>
=====================

When it is transmitted to the SMTP server, the lines get broken up like so
=====================
<p>* From 01 July 2005, Qantas Airways domestic ticketing through the =
FTU will not attract any commission at source, however there will <b><=
u>not</u></b> be any service fee. Members will be able to earn up to 3=
5% in incentive commissions on Group sales target achievement. Member=
s self-ticketing will be able to earn up to 4.0%. This commission will=
be paid quarterly. </p>
=====================

Notice the "3.5%" gets changed to "3=5%".  It seems the code to break up the
lines drops periods if they existed right at the break off point.  Is there
something I can do to fix this?

Thanks
Orlando
