Do not always blame the MUA, because actually, the MTAs may do anything
with the mail text. That's (among other reasons) why things like MIME
attachments were invented, because they (their respective uuencoded or
base64encoded "text") can be wrapped but does not change the
decoded form. - Something like that is in the pine doc.
