Well, it is hidden too here in gnus, but every gnus produced message has it
in the header, so if I were you, I'd tell rmail not to hide that header
for you, and even instead, highlight it, blink it :-), as it seems
like a good thing to know for you. I.e. unless the user mentions
differently, the one in the header is what he's using.  I mean all
these bytes added to each message over the years and the Chief
GNUisance is not benefiting from them?!

What fun would that be then?  Seriously though, you overestimate my
bandwidth, 56K, with another coin dropping every 10 minutes, and even
if I wanted to blow the dough, they said my mountaintop hideaway is
too far for ADSL etc. Plus, with my new multifaceted life, I don't
even use the computer every day. And, with my Limited Edition Brain, I
leave the setting up to Debian Sid, which I freshen with CDs maybe
once a year on some rare trip to town.  Anyway, it seems 4 out of 5 of
my bugs are still there anyway, not bad.
