As a family, MS clients (MS Outlook Express, Windows Mail, and Windows Live
Mail) fail to:
1.) Strip signatures indicated by the dash-dash-space-endline characters.
2.) Choke on MID$s when the thread gets several posts deep.
3.) Don't thread articles by MID$; such that any two articles with the
exact same characters in the "Subject:" line, but otherwise unrelated, will
be threaded together.
Windows Mail and Windows Live Mail have the additional capability to access
the "Microsoft Communities"; ostensibly to rate posts, and other cool things
not need for NNTP access. This capability has resulted in quirky behavior
for some users.
