Re: Message body size limits? (Bigger Problem)

I should have stayed away from Google Groups.  I liked the feature of having a forum they could post from or just email the group.  What I don't like now is the horrendous HTML of their output emails from their first couple of years when groups was new. Broken tags, especially "<table" and "<br/". Exclusion list, don't get me started- Authenticate-x, Mail-list name, Domain-key verified, etc... It was almost like they were making them up when they started. 2010 and 2011 emails are a lot better. 

Ok I know they messed up a lot of things too, but Microsoft has a pretty powerful email re-writing script in Outlook 2010.  You can open a message, enable editing strip out HTML, then resave it.  Seems to clean up and rewrite the header a little better on the resave. 

What has me perplexed now is the 18 unknown messages.  My error log has dropped significantly.  These 18 seem to be truncated emails of longer emails.  I have 287 emails in the folder being read, writing 305 emails on the run output, exactly the 18 unknown, subject, date, being written at the end of my index.html page.
