Re: Extraneous CRs in transfer of draft-crocker-email-arch-04.txt

 If you have a document with CRLF line endings on a UNIX or Linux system,
 it is likely to be transmitted over the wire with CRCRLF and stored
 (inappropriately) on other UNIX/Linux systems with CRLF endings.


Yes, that is one of a number of plausible scenarios.

However the fact that my windows system sees bare line-feeds from documents 
sent by the ietf server suggest that, instead, bare linefeeds are being sent, 
contrary to internet standards.

So, at least one other plausible scenario is that some of us have software 
that treats crlf and lf equally and some of us do not.
