The person running the tests these days is me, and that's the exact
opposite of what the tests are looking for, that it *doesn't* send the
UTF8 flag on ASCII mail. I didn't run the tests on Courier, but I
think the people who did checked correctly.

By the way, last time I checked, when Courier adds a Received line it says
UTF8ESMTP rather than UTF8SMTP.  Did you ever get around to fixing that?  It
looks like a one or two line fix.  Exim had the same bug.
