  I was wondering about this, but neglected to post it earlier.  
  On my return from the west on the California Zypher two weeks ago I was sending emails near population centers as a test and this is the only one which made it into the APRS-IS.  The VA3 call threw me:

Subject line was:
APRS Email created by VA3ROM-10 on behalf of K9DCI-7

Message body was:
This email was created using UI-View32 add-on
at 28/10/2008 11:41:28 AM

An APRS user, callsign K9DCI-7,     sent the following message:

      Hi from Ottumwa 73

(raw message noskosteve at yahoo.com Hi from Ottumwa 73 to destination EMAIL.)

You know that sea of entropy we were going to drown in?  Well, upon closer examination, it turned out to be ignorance.  S. Noskowicz 1987
