Oddly enough, I spotted this happening on a co-worker's copy of
outlook this morning, it had badly mangled a mail I'd sent him. Its an
outlook preference thing, which I presume happens in outlook express
too - on the 'Format' menu, if you have 'Unwrap Text' checked, it will
insert characters into mail in order to wrap lines differently -
whatever it guesses was the mail-quote character in use at the time.
This menu item only appears when the mail is plain text. Turn it off
and you see the mail as it was sent.

The original URL was written following conventions in appendix E of
rfc2396 (which outlook supports) so it should've actually worked.
