Hmm, the thing's really that there aren't any trust relationships at all =
in what MTA's do, or a more of global sort of trust.

Nope.  It's MIME Mail, and therefore there's no need to do that.  The one =
who can't handle the presentation is your end. ;-)  And in plain text it =
is actually split up just fine.

So, just leave it the way it is.  Heck, if we were gating in and out of =
X.400 I could see the point, but this is just a minor cosmetic defect.  =
Think of it as speckles ;-).

RFC822 isn't elegant in the first place ;-)  Doesn't need to be either.   =
It does the job, and Internet mail delivery will never win a beauty =
contest ;-).

Sick ;-)  I don't understand how someone came up with the idea to coin =
