Sometimes lack of headers in the summary table of an In-box of a mailing
program such as Eudora can result from having a malformed mail message
sitting in your mailbox on your ISP's mail server.

The easiest way to take care of it is to log into the text system operated
by your ISP [ ask for the telnet address of the mail server and use a
telnet program to get into whatever plain text.program running on your ISP ]]
Open the list of your mail from there, deleting the offending message.

If Larry finds that there are no mal-formed messages in his mailbox, then
the fault lies in the mailing program he is using on his own machine.

Hope this helps.
