It is correct at the above link. My mailer is Outlook 2016... so... yeah.

Yes it is. It loves mangling. Nice to see it mangled it again ☹. Porting sendmail was on my list of things to do, but pretty far down.

I have no such capability on the system where the changes were made, nor even with Outlook on my own local Windows dev box. I've tried my mac and linux machines but can't connect up to my (bleep) mailer from those without creating more (bleep). It's either that or I'm too close to the holidays.
