 If this convenience is secondary, why then does vger's zmailer try to
"punish" erm1 for the lack of 8bitmime? Take your pick: either
consider strict mime compliance as a must, and then don't use those
"crap machines" as exploders, or else consider strict mime compliance
as optional, and then don't mangle 8 bit messages. Just don't have it
both ways :)

Thanks in advance,

Alain
