                 These greatly aid end-users who are using standards compliant
                 mail readers.  They should normally always be enabled.

                 <p>However, not all mail readers are standards compliant yet,
                 and if you have a large number of members who are using
                 non-compliant mail readers, they may be annoyed at these
                 headers.  You should first try to educate your members as to
                 why these headers exist, and how to hide them in their mail
                 clients.  As a last resort you can disable these headers, but
                 this is not recommended (and in fact, your ability to disable
                 these headers may eventually go away)."""))
