So you're volunteering to rewrite the crashreporter?

Wrong. The crash report code doesn't assume that a mail client is
installed. You also can just save the zipped crashreport somewhere if
you like.
And honestly, I've never seen a windows server for which administration
was done through some telnet like app but always either directly (server
connected to monitor) or via remote desktop apps.

This is now the third time you mention hungarian notation and 'funny
indentation'. Honestly, can't you just tell me directly which variable
names you still don't like or where the 'funny' indentation is?
If you're referring to the 'HMODULE' - that's not a variable and
required by the API (check the MSDN).
Also, I indented every line by two spaces, added two more spaces after
an 'if' for the '{' and another two spaces for the code after '{' - as
far as I can see that's the same format as the rest of the file has.

As far as I'm concerned, that's as far as I go. If you don't like the
patch, just don't use it.
