There is no way an ASCII mail message can do what you say.  If this had 
really come from IBM, I suggest that the IBM employee would have attached 
his name to the message.  

It looks like a hoax to me.  It seems to be fundamentally a name exchange 
from "Good Times" to "Pen Pals."

There are many phenolic groups in lignin and its decomposition products.  
Lignin is found in terrestrial plants.  Very loosely, it is like glue 
that holds cellulose bundles together.  Sort of the collagen of 
terrestrial plants.  I'll probably get in trouble for that one.... ;-)
