What MUA generates all the FP's?

Makes me wonder about installing outbound filters that run a validator and 
reject anything that fails. I often see flame wars on mailing lists about 
allowing HTML posts to the list, but I wonder how the arguments would 
change if one allowed only *validated* HTML. I'll bet most who insist on 
using HTML would immediately be rejected by the validator. "Sorry, your 
message was rejected because your MUA vendor writes garbage that we can't 
parse, and makes you look like a spammer." ;)
