I got part 2, and then the same part 1 as had gone out before, when the
message had not been yet split, the next day.  And it arrived the same
way on all 4 different bbs's I get packets from (3 in the USA and 1 in
GB).  There still is a gap between 1 and 2, and it appears that 2 was
still not complete as it stopped in mid sentence.

Considering that I am using BlueWave, and not SLMR, that's not likely
the problem.  BW lets me know ahead of time if it is truncating a
message as it loads the extra long message, and that didn't happen with
any of Steve's messages.  Also, there's the matter of having the SEENBY
stuff show up at the end of the original, and at the same place on Part
1, breaking into the middle of a sentence.  That wouldn't have been put
in there by an OLR.

It could be that the reason you don't get Part 1 is that something on
the way to you (or even your set up?) considers that message to be
grunged and so doesn't pass it on to you.
