Do use some MUA software which handles MIME formats properly,
and stop whining. Oddly I recall that EXMH was used as
a prototype platform during the MIME specification development.

Most a bit more versatile MUAs can handle MIME structures
properly these days, including pine, mutt, netscape communicator,
etc. (I almoast included exmh there, but apparently it does not
do it, if you have any reason to complain...)

FYI: Linus uses PINE 4.10 for his email, I use mutt, although
modified so that it won't squirt in any "X-Mailer:" headers.
