Kindle upload-via-email plain text formatting
I pleasantly found today that if we load a plain text file to our @free.kindle.com, when the file is opened on my kindle, it is lightly formatted! It correctly recognized bullet points, even some headings (printed in large bold font). Does anyone know of this feature? It seems like an ASCIIDOC or rst-like syntax that they use in the conversion.
I am specifically interested to know the formatting syntax that it uses.

All files that you email are converted to .mobi format, which is HTML-based. You were lucky. The last time that I sent a list, the bullet points were not correct. You can put a .txt file directly onto the Kindle, via USB, if you want.
Edited to add: unless you email a pdf file, without "convert" in the subject line. Then, the pdf file is just delivered as is.
