"-- " is the signature seperator used in USENET messages this sperator
is invalid for Email. Please see:
http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2646.txt --> 4.3
"4.3. Usenet Signature Convention
There is a convention in Usenet news of using "-- " as the separator
line between the body and the signature of a message. When
generating a Format=Flowed message containing a Usenet-style
separator before the signature, the separator line is sent as-is.
This is a special case; an (optionally quoted) line consisting of
DASH DASH SP is not considered flowed."
Furter Down section 5 states
The constructs used in Text/Plain; Format=Flowed body parts are
described using [ABNF], including the Core Rules:"
"sig-sep = [quote] "--" SP CRLF"
