Look at the size of XP.EXE...

Did UKAW complain? My impression from your initial post was that it did

I suggest that you use the UKAW patch tool to avoid it's annoying header

The patch makes sure that the headers "X-Mailer:" and "X-Newsreader:"
are kept untouched. This is also crucial for the "User-Agent:" header
that I intend to create in the near future. This header has to follow a
specific syntax and UKAW would destroy this syntax.

This header is not created anymore. Furthermore headers set by FreeXP's
UUZ such as "X-RFC-Converter:" are not deleted anymore.
See also <9Z78j$2fCHB at my.freexp.de> in d.c.s.c and thread. The patch
tool is available here:
After applying it, you should send 'clean' RFC headers as with other
clients. Happy FreeXP'ing... :-)
