I do appreciate it.  Thanks.

It has taken me weeks to get around to trying the patches.  After loading 
them from the public Store repository they do not seem to do the trick.

I wonder if I'm doing something wrong.

The following method exists in my image for class MessageHeaders:

sendOver: aStream

 self do: [ :header |
   nextPutAll: header key;
   nextPutAll: ': '. "A space is needed by IE for some headers"
  aStream nextPutAll:
   (self headerEncode: header).
  aStream crlf.

So the fix would appear to be there alright.  Any thoughts?
