Sure, no problem. I wasn't even aware pine was base64'ing it
(quoted-printable would have been adequate). I do prefer the safety from
gateway and mailer munching that mime provides (having had some bad
experiences with in-message code patches in the past), but its no good if
it makes it unreadable... 

On the other hand, you could think about getting a mime mailer...

I've been going through the questions I get directed at Apache Week... so
expect more FAQ updates soon.

I think anything on the FM branch will do. I'm using 2.4-FM -- 2.7 is out
now. (FM is the branch developed by Worcester Institute using UKansas 2.3
base code. UKansas stopped development soometime later and now recommend
people use the FM branch. Umm, sound familiar?). 

Get Lynx(-FM) from, or maybe
