I would lay bets that the "poison pill" is a snippet of RTF code in

Try forcing a "from XyWrite" conversion with SA/RTF/NV.  It works,
right?


Nail on the head again. Absolutely. The headers of each post contain a line beginning

X-UIDL:

followed by a string of letters and numbers and punctuation marks, which nearly always contains a backslash; here's an example:

A,I"!X_g"!20p!!\/_!!

I suppose one of them may, purely by accident, be an RTF format.
