Thanks for the feedback, I guess I'll leave it as it is for now then.
I've been really busy recently too, but do let me know how your regex
thing goes, I'd be interested. Might even have a go at doing a version
myself, when exams are over.

The email came through unwwrapped, I usually use plain text mode and
edit the email externally - I use vimperator, which is a Firefox plugin,
and it allows you to edit text fields with a external editor.
