The displaying of the message in Outlook is broken. The users don't
really care who's fault it is... they just see the fact that their
mails sometimes sometimes look wrong in Outlook and are unhappy.

Hey, I am a big fan of open-source, you don't need to try to
convince me... I just would like to provide the best possible
service to my users, so, if I could fix the fact that their mails a
sometimes displayed incorrectly in Outlook, that would be great.

OK... I'll have a look at the code and try to fix it myself. Would
you be interested in a patch or is the redability of the raw encoded
string to you preferable to IMP users being able to send mails to
Outlook users in a way that the mails are displayed correctly?
