Hmm. I'll take a look and make sure it is the same as the 1.02. It should only print a select set of headers.

            if (!strncmp(bp->line, "From:", 5) ||
               !strncmp(bp->line, "To:", 3) ||
               !strncmp(bp->line, "Date:", 5) ||
               !strncmp(bp->line, "Subject:", 8)) {
               fprintf(fp, "<STRONG>%s</STRONG><BR>\n", bp->line);

This is what is in the code. Not sure why its dumping everything... I'll see.

This is true. I need to review the patches again to make sure all the system-related ones are in. (Sadly I do not have a Debian box to test it with locally.)
