Email headers appearing in the body of the email  (See more user questions)

Hi

Thank you for your purchase (I don't see it in my records, what name did you
use?).

I can't recommend anything for the Pro version because I don't know how you
fixed the free version!!!!!

I haven't heard any replies to my other questions, other than you said you
got it working, but I haven't the foggiest idea what you did. I needed the
answers to my other questions, including the forwarded "bad" email so I
could tell what was wrong with your setup.

As it stands, I know nothing because you have told me nothing.

If you let me know the answers to my previous questions, I can take it from
there, but remember I said that a lot of the functionality of the Pro
version would be lost if you had a problem with your system accepting
headers.

Again, without knowing any more, I am only guessing here.

Please advise.
