Hint: use Thunderbird and the "QuoteCollapse" add-on extension. Totally 
solves this problem for you. Using "Quote Colors" is a good idea too, 
unless you're using Shredder as it's built into Shredder (the 
pre-release versions of the next version of Thunderbird). So the usual 
answer: use a better email client :-)

No, nothing to do with the OS or version, it's a bug of my creation. He 
happened to have a space after the "Run As User = postfix" and/or the 
"Run As Group = postfix" lines. That's all it was.
