  Actually, this COULD be done, as it could simply look at the 'to' address, 
and keep some sort of cache of the last 2,000 or so addresses it sent to, but 
then what takes more time, transmitting the extra 20 characters?  Guess we'll 
have to find out..  ;-P  It's just that it would require ALL transports to 
support these lookup tables to actually HAVE the timezone data cached 
properly.  Not to mention, you'd lose it during a restart of the transport, and 
there's no way of the upstream transport knowing that the destination transport 
had to do a restart.

  How's about instead of using 

timezone="-0800 (CST"

we use


  Good idea about cutting it down a bit, though..
