Hmmm.  Looking at your post, I don't see a MailScanner sig appended
underneath your signature.  I do on mine.  So now your signature is
stripped out, but replying to my post strips out the MailScanner
signature, but not my signature.  It must parse from the bottom up.

I think you're right about Exchange not stripping it out.  I 'see' the
space in my signature before I reply, but not in the reply itself, so
maybe it's Outlook 2003 that's doing the cleanup.

I dunno.  Glad you got yours sorted...
