I wrote a little VBA module in Outlook that modifies the RE: back to Re:
before sending the message and that seems to solve the problem. 
Note that Outlook detects RE: and Re: correctly and will not duplicate them
but other mailers seem to have problems with RE: and prepend a Re:. I have
plenty of Re: RE: RE:... messages in my inbox.
