As far as I know, yes. I'm using exmh, which always gives you the choice which
encoding to use when you attach a binary (base64, quote-printable, uuencode).
I always opt for uuencode, and this works out fine for all parties (even for
those who receive these mails on CompuServe - now that's a really broken
system).

It's a real pity that MIME doesn't have broader and better support - I quite
like it (although nowadays, my mailer is constantly starting up xv to show me
all kinds of penguins when I'm reading linux-kernel :-)).
